Overview

Despite huge media attention and public awareness, more dedicated publications, recent advances in pharmaceutical and medical device developments, heart disease in women is under-diagnosed, under-treated, and under-managed. What is wrong? Why? Many women fail to present in the clinic when symptomatic because of their responsibilities to the home, children and work. Often the first presentation follows a cardiac event. For many multicenter clinical trials, women are excluded regardless of age, cardiac events, or vascular health, because they are women, because they are of child-bearing age, because most clinical trails are male-oriented. Two of the world's leading cardiologists who deal with women's health, Nanette Wenger and Peter Collins, have updated this best-selling title. The contributors, some from the first edition and others which are new, are all leaders in the field of women's cardiac health. Women & Heart Disease covers all aspects of cardiovascular disease and just not coronary heart disease. It is requisite reading for all those physicians who have a particular interest in women and heart disease.
