Abstract: Cardiovascular mortality remains one of the leading causes of death across the globe, accounting to a total of 27.15% of deaths in the Maltese Islands for the year 2014. Plaque fissuring and/or plaque erosion constitute the foundations of the pathogenesis of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) ranging from a spectrum of unstable angina, ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non-STEMI. made in the understanding of ACS. Both the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the American College of Cardiology/ American Heart Association published new guidelines on the management of ACS in patients without persistent ST-segment elevation. This article aims to highlight some of the major developments and recommendations that have been put forward.
