Coronary Disease in Women
Leslee J. Shaw, Rita F. Redberg
Humana Press, Oct 27, 2003 - Medical - 448 pages
An authoritative guide to clinical management of women with known or suspected coronary artery disease. Using an evidence-based approach, the authors apply the latest epidemiological findings and diagnostic tools to the evaluation of stable chest pain and acute ischemic syndromes in women, and detail the therapeutic effectiveness of various treatments in women, such as coronary revascularization, electrophysiology, exercise training and cardiac rehabilitation, and menopausal hormone therapy. Additional chapters examine the effects of gender bias in diagnosis and treatment, the role of gynecologists as primary care physicians for women, health technology assessment in an era of managed care, and the problems of analyzing cost-effectiveness in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease in women.
