To the Editor: Dr Fox and colleagues1 documented a multinational improvement in provision of evidence-based care for patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS), with reduction in mortality and morbidity associated with these treatments. The study reinforces the need to further improve adherence to evidence-based guidelines and demonstrates the clinical benefit that can be achieved with such a strategy.
