Abstract

Abstract

Objective: To present a case series highlighting the diverse clinical presentations and management approaches in patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS).

Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of four ACS cases, focusing on clinical history, examination findings, diagnostic tests, and treatment strategies.

Results: The case series includes patients with unstable angina (UA), non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) with acute decompensated heart failure, and ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Each case illustrates the importance of early recognition and individualized management.

Discussion: ACS encompasses a broad spectrum of clinical presentations, requiring prompt diagnosis and risk stratification for appropriate intervention. These cases emphasize the critical role of tailored management in improving patient outcomes.

Conclusion: ACS management should consider the heterogeneity of clinical presentations and prioritize accurate diagnosis and risk assessment.
