GULF ACS " Gulf Assessment of Coronary Syndromes Registry " is a regional medical database for the Arabian Gulf countries that was initiated under the auspices of Gulf Heart Association &represents a smart merger between the former Arabian Gulf ACS registry - Gulf Race - & the Saudi Arabian ACS Registry "Space Registry".
Gulf ACS project is lead by its steering committee members who were assigned as two representative delegates from each gulf country. The integrity of the members & the registries has yield a significant medical database that is operating in the seven Arabian gulf countries.
The main goal of this registry is to study the current practice patterns in the management of CAD patients & to assess the gap between the practice and available evidences, thereafter, try to improve the quality of cardiac care provided to such large population.
GULF ACS study will have two main parts,
Part-1: The" In-Hospital Registry" that includes the baseline measurement of process of care, outcomes, health care services & the health care report cards/critical Pathways
Part-2: The" Clinical Follow-Up Registry" that includes a 1 month and 1 year follow-ups calculated from the last ACS admission of each patient registered in the In-Hospital registry.
This study requires filling an electronic Case Report Form (CRF) over 3 years period. then, each ACS patient will be subsequently followed up in different pre-assigned phases to precisely check on relevant case complications as well as to monitor his/her ACS condition & the measures taken.

Several medical professional entities are integrated in GULF ACS registry & represented by the principal coordinating center, countries principal investigators, steering committee, satellite site principal investigators, and research assistants.
The principal coordinating center is chaired by Dr. Khalid F. AlHabib & located in King Fahad Cardiac Center, College of Medicine at King Saud University in Al-Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
