Résumé :

Despite media attention and public awareness, recent advances in pharmaceutical and medical developments, heart disease in women is under-diagnosed, under-treated, and under-managed. Many women fail to present in the clinic when symptomatic, because of responsibilities at home or at work. Often the first presentation follows a cardiac event. Women are excluded from many clinical trials regardless of age or cardiac history, simply because most trials are aimed at male patients. This best-selling, updated title, aimed at changing this treatment of women's cardiac issues, covers all aspects of female cardiovascular disease. It is required reading for all practitioners who assess female patients.
