Women s Vascular Health Book Review:

This book brings together specialist authors from a variety of medical disciplines to give comprehensive coverage of the whole spectrum of women's vascular health. Covering coronary artery disease and its precursors, venous disease, thrombophilic defects, hormonal therapy and haemorrhagic problems, the content is divided into three sections. Section one reviews generic issues including the pathophysiology of arteriosclerosis, metabolic factors in vascular disease, the epidemiology and management of CHD in women. The management of cardiac syndrome X and the problem of diabetes are also discussed here. The second section looks at women's vascular health as it applies to fertility issues and during pregnancy such as polycystic ovarian disease, menstrual dysfunction, the menopause, venous thromboembolism and haemorrhagic problems. In the concluding third section, hormonal therapy in women and in particular the oral contraceptive pill and hormone replacement therapies are covered. The reader will be given a clear overview of the potential mechanisms whereby such therapy can act as a risk factor for arterial and venous disease, and will receive clear guidance regarding prescribing.

Management of Cardiovascular Disease in Women Book Review:

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women in the US, with more women dying from heart disease than men. Women may have different presentation from men and often need a different approach to diagnosis and treatment. There are also unique topics of management of heart disease in women, including issues during pregnancy, lactation, and menopause. Many different health care providers, as well as cardiologists are involved in treating these patients. A manual reviewing diagnosis and treatment of cardiac disease in women would help providers without specific cardiology training to deliver care with greater efficiency. A practical and comprehensive guide geared towards these providers would be a highly practical and valuable resource that would be utilized in everyday practice in offices that include urban clinics, general medicine offices, obstetrics and gynecology offices, as well as in the surgical subspecialties. This book will be a highly practical resource that can be directly applied to the issues that arise in everyday practice. There is no available book on the market that focuses on a broader approach to cardiac disease in women or focuses on non-cardiology providers (and their trainees) who have the need to know more about treatment of cardiovascular disease in women.​

Gender Differences in the Pathogenesis and Management of Heart Disease Book Review:

This book reviews all aspects of the diagnosis and management of heart disease in women, covering areas such as gender differences in metabolic syndrome, hypertension and atherogenesis. Gender differences in cardiovascular diseases are widespread, but while gender medicine takes into account the effects of sex and gender on the health of women and men, traditionally, women have been underrepresented in cardiovascular clinical trials, in management of different cardiac diseases and drug use. Gender Differences in the Pathogenesis and Management of Heart Disease deals with the gender-specific differences in cardiac physiology and diseases and brings into perspective the critical significance of gender in management of cardiovascular disease presentations and management. As such it is of enormous use to all clinical staff who manage women with cardiovascular disease.

Treatment Strategies for Women with Coronary Artery Disease Book Review:

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death among women in the United States. More than 500,000 women die of cardiovascular disease each year, exceeding the number of deaths in men and the next seven causes of death in women combined. This translates into approximately one death every minute. Coronary artery disease (CAD)—which includes coronary atherosclerotic disease, myocardial infarction (MI), acute coronary syndrome, and angina—is the most prevalent form of cardiovascular disease and is the largest subset of this mortality. An estimated 16.3 million Americans 20 years of age and older have CAD, and the overall CAD prevalence is 7 percent in adults in the United States (8.3% for men, 6.1% for women). The prevalence of CAD is higher in men than in women across different age groups until they reach 75 years of age, giving the perception that CAD is a male-specific disease. This report focuses on women because of the differences in clinical presentation and coronary anatomy, which affect the treatment options for CAD. Currently available guidelines and systematic reviews provide specific treatment recommendations for women only among a subset of treatment options and overall assume that treatment options are equally effective for both sexes when gender data are not available. However, women have a worse prognosis than men for manifestations of CAD such as acute myocardial infarction, and some data suggest that women and men do not respond equally to the same treatments. Further, women are more likely than men to experience bleeding complications. In women, CAD is misdiagnosed or not treated as aggressively as in men or is under researched. Multiple factors are likely to contribute to the lower use of evidence-based medicine (medical therapy and/or coronary revascularization) and the higher rate of cardiovascular complications among women with CAD. These factors include: Cardiovascular disease affects women later in life; At the time CAD is diagnosed, women are more likely to have comorbid factors such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, peripheral vascular disease, and heart failure; Women present with angina-equivalent symptoms such as dyspnea or atypical symptoms more often than men; The coronary vessels in women tend to be smaller than those of men, which makes them more difficult to revascularize percutaneously and surgically, and microvascular disease of the coronary arteries is more common in women than in men; Women tend to have less extensive CAD and a higher proportion of nonobstructive CAD; Delay in hospitalization, symptom pattern and recognition, and higher frequency of nonobstructive CAD ultimately results in delay in diagnosis and effective treatment; Because of underrepresentation of women in randomized controlled trials (RCTs), a lack of solid data on cardiovascular disease in women leaves uncertainty about the risk–benefit ratio of treatment. Thus, a better understanding of the evidence for the effectiveness of medical treatment and revascularization therapies specifically in women is needed in order to reduce cardiovascular events in women. Although CAD is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, treatment studies to date have primarily enrolled men and may not reflect the benefits and risks that women experience. We conducted this systematic review of the medical literature to assess the comparative effectiveness of the major treatment options for CAD specifically in women, evaluating these comparisons: 1. PCI versus fibrinolysis or PCI versus conservative/supportive medical management in women with STEMI; 2. Early invasive versus initial conservative management in women with UA/NSTEMI; 3. PCI versus CABG versus optimal medical therapy in women with stable or unstable angina. The endpoints assessed were clinical outcomes, modifiers of effectiveness by demographic and clinical factors, and safety outcomes.

Women And Cardiovascular Disease Addressing Disparities In Care Book Review:

Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the US and Europe today. Over the last 20 years, many innovations in technology have allowed for improved therapies for heart attack and stroke and overall outcomes have significantly improved. Death rates from cardiovascular disease in men are declining.However, even with these improvements in care, death rates for women remain unchanged. This book will explore these gender disparities in care in depth — specific sections will be devoted to answering the questions of why they are occurring and what healthcare providers and women can do to effect change and narrow the gender gap in cardiovascular care.Ultimately, this book is designed to open the eyes of healthcare providers, medical professionals and policy makers — as well as potential female patients — and should serve as a “call to action” to promote better cardiovascular care for women. Through education, awareness and advocacy women worldwide will benefit, the gap will begin to close and better cardiovascular care can be provided for all.

Women Heart Disease Second Edition Book Review:

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.

Percutaneous Treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases in Women Book Review:

This book describes a wide range of interventional procedures currently employed in the treatment of cardiac diseases in women with the aim of enabling not only interventional cardiologists but also cardiologists and cardiac surgeons to refine their approach to female patients and thus improve outcomes. The book reflects the increasing awareness of gender differences with regard to coronary artery disease and structural valve heart disease. Examples include myocardial infarction, which carries a worse prognosis in women in part because they suffer from this disease mostly in the 7th decade of life, present more frequently with hemodynamic instability and later from symptom onset, and have fragile, small and tortuous coronary arteries that are more technically demanding in the context of primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Another example is symptomatic aortic stenosis, which carries a better prognosis in women who undergo trans-catheter aortic valve implantation partially due to a better annulus-prosthesis match, which leads to less residual paravalvular regurgitation, better left ventricular function and lower aggregation of comorbidities. Further, in women left ventricular response to aortic stenosis is typified by muscle hypertrophy with a small ventricular cavity. These differences are reflected in the clinical manifestations and their impact on diagnosis, treatment, and choice of tools and devices for use in interventional procedures. By explaining the at times subtle variances in disease and treatment techniques for female and male patients, this book will help practitioners select the most appropriate procedures and materials in a range of settings.
