Quick Overview
A paucity of published texts on heart disease in women exists despite the fact that cardiovascular disease represents the most common cause of death in women throughout the world irrespective of the levels of household income and social status and more women die from it than men. Also alarming are the misperceptions prevalent among both the lay public and the medical professionals that cardiovascular disease, especially coronary heart disease, is an uncommon entity in women and this often leads to reduced surveillance and misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis with consequent undermanagement and undertreatment. This book focuses on all aspects of heart disease in women, discusses all the recent relevant information available in the literature and attempts to dispel the existing misconceptions. The book, therefore, serves to fill an important existing void and by enhancing the awareness of cardiovascular disease in women could encourage more vigorous efforts for both primary and secondary prevention by various local, national and international agencies and organizations. The book consists of 34 chapters written by several nationally and internationally renowned physicians, scientists and cardiologists. It is organized into eight sections dealing with prevention, risk factors, coronary heart disease, non-invasive testing, heart failure, cardiomyopathy, pericarditis, arrhythmias and sudden death, rheumatic heart disease, valvular heart disease, peripheral arterial disease, pregnancy and congenital heart disease. A special chapter provides an update on recent literature on heart disease in women.

REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION

Sylvia Alicia Oleck, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)

Description

of all aspects of heart disease in women, discussing the significance of cardiovascular disease as the leading cause of mortality for women in the United States and attempting to dispel misconceptions regarding heart disease in women. The authors are nationally and internationally renowned physicians, scientists, and cardiologists who effectively discuss women‘s’ cardiovascular health.

Purpose

wareness of cardiovascular disease in women among both patients and physicians. This book is clinically relevant because cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality for women in the United States and is responsible for a third of all deaths in women worldwide. The information in this book is based on the most recent trials and American Heart Association guidelines.

Audience

The audience includes students in training, cardiologists, advanced practice clinicians, and primary care providers.

Features

The book begins by presenting the epidemiology of women with heart disease based on data from the World Health Organization and then discusses guidelines for the prevention of heart disease in women. It then delves into the different cardiac conditions that can affect women, namely coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, valvular heart disease, heart disease during pregnancy, and congenital cardiac lesions. The book is filled with pertinent pictures, echocardiographic images, graphs, and trial data, making it easy to read. Notably, the last chapter provides a review of the current literature on heart disease in women.

Assessment

This book presents both the epidemiology of disease processes affecting women with cardiovascular disease and advances in management of these patients as well as the latest updates and guidelines from recent trials. It serves to fill a void by improving awareness of cardiovascular disease in women on both the local and international level and seeks to dispel existing misconceptions.
