Abstract

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality in women yet studies have suggested it is often underrecognized. Of particular concern is the apparent suboptimal treatment of women in comparison to men, with less revascularization and use of evidence-based medications. The Women in Innovations group of cardiologists, aims to highlight these issues and change perceptions to optimize the treatment of female patients with cardiovascular disease, support future research, and encourage and guide the training of female interventional cardiologists.
