Abstract

Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from cardiovascular disease. Various organizations, such as the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, have published prevention guidelines for heart disease and stroke that may improve care for women. In this article, we review these guidelines, the results of new studies on emerging risk factors, and new approaches for reducing cardiovascular disease in women.
