Heart disease and Women.
Although the basics of coronary artery disease in men and women are identical, women have profound differences in genetics and hormones dictating their endothelial and myocardial fabric. This makes women more vulnerable to heart disease and many woman die being treated the same way as men.
In 2009, 402,000 women died of heart disease compared to 387,000 men. Doctors failed to recognize heart disease in women which delayed lifesaving treatment. Men received advanced care and better treatment.
