Cardiovascular disease in postmenopausal women

Samsioe, Göran LU (1998) In Maturitas 30(1). p.11-18
Abstract
With many risk factors for cardiovascular disease, myocardial infarction in particular now being well defined, it becomes increasingly clear that a majority of these factors are not only age, but also gender specific. Confidential risk factors such as smoking, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, overweight and hyperlipaemia, might have a different impact in women than in men. Moreover, there are substantial clinical differences between male and female ischaemic heart disease, both as to presentation, as well as to diagnosis, therapy and prognosis. In addition to a discussion to the risk factors mentioned above, the cardioprotective actions of oestrogens will be reviewed.
