Cardiovascular Disease and Women
Cardiovascular disease is a common cause of morbidity and mortality for women and men in the United States. Deaths from cardiovascular disease outnumber deaths from all cancers combined and account for almost half of all deaths in women. Numerous studies have demonstrated important gender differences in the response to treatment for certain cardiovascular disorders. Despite the alarming prevalence of cardiovascular disease in women and its potential for adverse outcomes, the seriousness of this disease can be mistakenly perceived by women and their treating physicians. Recently, many physicians and organizations have begun to realize the importance of acknowledging the risk of cardiovascular disease among women, in particular post-menopausal women, and the potential gender differences in the prevention and treatment of these disorders.
