Women and Heart Disease

By Desmond Julian, Nanette Wenger Copyright 2006

    Despite being one of the world’s biggest killers of women, heart disease is under-diagnosed, under-treated, and under-managed. Why? What is going wrong?

    Important and ground-breaking, Women and Heart Disease brings our attention to the inadequacies in both the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease in women.

    Key features:

    * written by Nanette Wenger and Peter Collins, two of the world’s leading cardiologists
    * contributions from leaders in women’s cardiac health
    * covers all aspects of cardiovascular disease, not just coronary artery disease
    * fully updated.

    Building on the success of the best-selling first edition, this is essential reading for all physicians with a particular interest in women and heart disease.
