Popis Coronary heart disease, sometimes also referred to as ischemic heart disease, remains the leading condition causing most deaths and disability-adjusted life years worldwide. Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) represents a subset that is defined by sudden reduction of blood supply in the coronary arteries. ACS consists of unstable angina, non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The current short communication aims to provide current ACS prevalence and incidence data analysis to inform development of clinical practice guidelines in the Czech Republic. The Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic has provided the data that are collected by the National Health Information System with the National Register of Reimbursed Health Services as a primary source providing data for the period from 2015 to 2017. There has been a slight decrease in the number of hospitalized patients for ACS in the Czech Republic from 2015 to 2017. Sex difference remains large, with majority (two thirds) of those hospitalized for unstable angina, NSTEMI, or STEMI being men. Hospitalization with STEMI is reported in younger age with no sex difference compared with NSTEMI and unstable angina.
