LONDON, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a serious cardiovascular disease associated with high healthcare costs, frequent recurrences and hospitalizations, and high risks of sudden death and short-term mortality. The ACS incidence increases with age and will be a significant public health problem as the elderly population increases around the world. ACS is classified into three disease entities based on evidence of heart muscle damage inferred from a person's symptoms, changes in the ST tracing of the electrocardiogram (ECG), and levels of cardiac biomarkers that signify heart muscle death: ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), and unstable angina (UA). These three disease entities differ in their clinical characteristics, treatment approaches, and survival probabilities.
GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that in the 7MM, the diagnosed prevalent cases of ACS will grow from 25.45 million cases in 2015 to 30.62 million cases in 2025, at an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 2.03%. Throughout the forecast period, the diagnosed prevalent cases of ACS in the US will constitute the highest proportion in the 7MM at approximately 54%. In the 7MM, the diagnosed prevalent cases of ACS will be higher in men (61.81%) and in the age group older than 65 years (62.84%). STEMI, NSTEMI, and UA will constitute approximately 25%, 40%, and 35% of the diagnosed prevalent cases of ACS in the 7MM. In the 7MM, GlobalData epidemiologists project ACS hospitalizations to increase from 1.63 million cases in 2015 to 1.71 million cases in 2025 at an AGR of 0.51%. The US constitutes around 40% of the total hospitalized ACS cases in the 7MM for the year 2015 and will be the market with the highest number of cases during the forecast period. In 2015, the majority of the ACS hospitalizations occurred in men (62.85%) and in the age group older than 65 years (69.34%). In the year 2015, about 29% of the ACS cases in the 7MM were STEMI, 44% were NSTEMI, and 25% were UA.
