Abstract

Numerous studies of sex differences in morbidity and mortality after an episode of acute coronary disease shown unclear results. In particular is not clear if women undergoing coronary revascularization procedures have adverse in-hospital and long-term outcomes compared with men. Recent clinical trial have provided new insights into this problem. The influence on gender differences for the decision to undertake coronary angiography and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty will be discussed.
