Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in women, despite the overall reduction in age-adjusted CVD mortality in the past few years. Aside from the traditional risk factors, predictors of increased CVD risk in both sexes, there are also unique RFs in women, related to their reproductive and gynecological history. Moreover, among women, there is a lack of knowledge and perception of CVD. In comparison to men, women with CVD are typically underdiagnosed and undertreated.
The problem is more significant among women due to the incorrect and ingrained belief that CVD is primarily, if not exclusively, a male disease. This misunderstanding is generated by the differences in the clinical presentation of CVD in the two sexes, and by the increased prevalence of advanced postmenopausal age among women.
The aim of this Special Issue is to gather new data on peculiar features of CVD and risk factors in women, in order to reduce the underestimation of CVD risk, and to find strategies that are for prevention, management and therapy that is tailor made to the specific woman’s needs.
Cutting-edge research (original article and reviews, etc.) are welcome.
