Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in men and in women (1), and over the past several years, increasing medical attention has been given to coronary artery disease in women. The differences between women and men in the presentation and natural history of coronary artery disease are multiple. Coronary artery disease generally presents at least 10 years later in women than in men. Angina is typically the first clinical symptom in women, whereas myocardial infarction is usually… Expand
The role of nuclear cardiology in the diagnosis and risk stratification of women with ischemic heart disease.
TLDR
Technological advances in nuclear cardiology including attenuation correction and coronary flow reserve measurement by PET hold promise in optimizing the diagnosis and risk stratification of women with IHD. Expand

TLDR
Current information about the occurrence and risk factors of atherosclerotic CVD in American women is reported, which includes coronary heart disease, stroke and heart failure, and the gap narrows with advancing age. Expand

TLDR
Angina is the commonest initial clinical presenting symptom of coronary artery disease in women, compared with myocardial infarction for men, from the Framingham data. Expand
Hormone Therapy and Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators for Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease in Postmenopausal Women: Estrogen Replacement from the Cardiologist's Perspective
TLDR
The increased incidence of cardiovascular events in postmenopausal women and the evidence that cardiovascular disease on average manifests a decade later in women compared with men suggests that estrogen deficiency may predispose women to a higher cardiovascular risk. Expand
The impact of early menopause on risk of coronary artery disease (PREmature Coronary Artery Disease In Women – PRECADIW case-control study)
TLDR
It is shown that smoking and early postmenopausal stage (≤3years) are the most important determinants of premature CAD followed by parental CVD, diabetes and hypertension. Expand
Stage of Reproductive Life, Atherosclerosis Progression and Estrogen Effects on Coronary Artery Atherosclerosis
TLDR
Evidence is provided that estrogen effects on coronary arteries vary with reproductive life stage, time since menopause, and stage of progression of coronary artery atherosclerosis, which suggests that estrogen deficiency has a more significant role. Expand

  • 2005
TLDR
Results of prospective clinical trials indicate that neither estrogen nor estrogen+progestin hormone therapy reduces the risk of CVD in postmenopausal women, and a major interest of health professionals is to better understand the determinants ofCVD risk of women before becoming post menopausal.

SPONTANEOUS CORONARY ARTERY DISSECTION IN A PRE- MENOPAUSAL WOMAN OCCURRING JUST PRIOR TO MENSTRUATION
TLDR
A 46 year old pre-menopausal woman without cardiac risk factors presenting with acute inferior myocardial infarction and SCAD angiographically is described, who was noted to be at the end of her menstrual cycle. Expand
Myocardial infarction in a premenopausal woman with a decreased serum estrogen level due to leuprorelin acetate.
TLDR
This case suggests that a decreased serum estrogen level could cause ischemic heart disease even in premenopausal women. Expand
The role of the heart-type fatty acid binding protein in the early diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome and its comparison with troponin I and creatine kinase-MB isoform.
TLDR
For patients admitted with chest pain to ES, H-FABP was found to be more sensitive and specific than troponin I and CK-MB in the early diagnosis of ACS. Expand

Effect of risk factors on the mechanism of acute thrombosis and sudden coronary death in women.
TLDR
In women, traditional risk factors have distinct effects on the mechanisms of sudden coronary death, which vary by menopausal status, which may be targeting different mechanisms of plaque instability. Expand
Does angina vary with the menstrual cycle in women with premenopausal coronary artery disease?
TLDR
During the menstrual cycle myocardial ischaemia was more easily induced when oestrogen concentrations were low, which may be important for timing the assessment and evaluating treatment in women with coronary heart disease. Expand

TLDR
Whether the variation of ovarian hormones during a menstrual cycle affects the frequency of myocardial ischemia in premenopausal women with variant angina is examined. Expand

TLDR
Since 1988, a flood of new information established that the epidemiology, risk factors, clinical features, outcome and therapeutic choices physicians make for female patients with cardiovascular disease are significantly different from those of men. Expand
Age at natural menopause and risk of cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
An overall significant association between younger age at menopause and higher risk of CHD among women who experienced natural menoppause and never used hormone therapy was observed among current smokers but not among never smokers. Expand
Clinical profile and long-term prognosis of women < or = 50 years of age referred for coronary angiography for evaluation of chest pain.
TLDR
The clinical profile, angiographic results, and long-term follow-up of 135 women referred for coronary angiography because of chest pain found that the most prominent risk factor was hyperlipidemia, followed by a family history of coronary disease, systemic hypertension, cigarette smoking, and diabetes mellitus.

TLDR
After myocardial infarction, younger women, but not older women, have higher rates of death during hospitalization than men of the same age. Expand
Sex-Based Differences in Early Mortality after Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
It is hypothesized that younger, but not older, women have higher mortality rates during hospitalization than their male peers, and sex-based differences in the rates varied according to age. Expand
Women's perceptions of their general health, with special reference to their risk of coronary artery disease: results of a national telephone survey.
TLDR
A surprisingly large number of women are either not counseled at all or are inadequately counseled about their susceptibility to CAD, and the quality of the assessment of these women for CAD and thequality of the treatment they receive are subject to question. Expand
Changes in hemodynamic parameters and volume homeostasis with the menstrual cycle among women with a history of preeclampsia.
TLDR
Although baseline hemodynamic and volume status among women with a history of preeclampsia differed from that among healthy parous control subjects, the cyclic variation with the menstrual cycle was largely preserved. Expand
