Among patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS), patients with diabetes, elderly patients and women represent groups at high risk for adverse outcomes. Higher risk patients sustain a high proportion of the mortality and morbidity that accompanies ACS, yet also potentially derive greater absolute benefit from effective management strategies and interventions. This review focuses on information regarding the increased risk, as well as select aspects of management of ACS, for patients with diabetes, the elderly, and women. Special attention is given to aspects of prognosis or management that may differ from general patients with ACS.
