Heart Disease in Women: A New Era of Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment 2018
This program will provide an in-depth assessment of the current status of cardiovascular disease in women, with a focus on risk assessment, diagnostic testing modalities and treatment options. The course will offer new paradigms in understanding the mechanisms of sex differences in cardiovascular disease, and provide participants with tools to translate new knowledge into sex- and gender- specific patient care. Focus areas include cardiovascular conditions that present uniquely or differently among women. Novel approaches will be presented to optimize prevention, diagnosis treatment and outcomes for conditions such as heart failure, non-obstructive coronary disease, microvascular disease, spontaneous coronary artery dissection, and stress-induced cardiomyopathy.
