TOPIC:          What’s So Different About Heart Disease in Women?
In the United States, cardiovascular disease is the major cause of death in both men and women. While cardiovascular diseases in men and women share many similarities, there are distinctions that require different diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. These differences are important, for while the mortality rate of men with cardiovascular disease has been decreasing, the mortality in women has been on the rise.
