Abstract

Background: We described lifestyle changes one year after acute coronary syndrome (ACS) among patients in Arabian Gulf countries. Methodology: Data of patients admitted to 29 hospitals in 4 countries with the diagnosis of ACS were analysed from Gulf citizens with ACS events (Gulf COAST) registry. A total of 3565 ACS patients recruited in the Gulf COAST registry had a one-year follow up available. There was a significant correlation between return to work and the age of patient (p <.001). At one-year post ACS, the majority were performing their usual activities (93%), but only 39% were exercising. Smoking cessation was successful in 60% of patients and most non-quitters tried or considered quitting (18 and 21% of the total population of smokers, respectively). Sexual activity was reported from 2290 male patients at one-year follow up. The majority reported performing sexual activity (66%) with no fear of sexual intercourse (57%). Results and Conclusion: At one year after an ACS, the majority of our patients returned to their work, sexual activity and other usual activity. Clearly, improvement is needed when it comes to smoking cessation and exercise.
