AIMS: To determine characteristics, outcomes, prognostic indicators and management of patients with acute coronary syndromes without ST elevation., METHODS AND RESULTS: A prospective registry was carried out with follow-up for 6 months after index hospital admission. A history of acute cardiac chest pain was required plus ECG changes consistent with myocardial ischaemia and/or prior evidence of coronary heart disease. Patients with ST elevation or those receiving thrombolytic therapy were excluded. A total of 1046 patients were enrolled from 56 U.K. hospitals. The mean age was 66+/-12 years and 39% were female. The rate of death or non-fatal myocardial infarction at 6 months was 12.2% and of death, new myocardial infarction, refractory angina or re-admission for unstable angina at 6 months was 30%. In a multivariate analysis, patients >70 years had a threefold risk of death or new myocardial infarction compared with those
