COURSE DESCRIPTION
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the US and accounts for more deaths each year than all other causes combined. The rates of death are even higher in women of racial or ethnic minority. One in three women will die of some form of heart or vascular disease. However, only one-third of women are aware of this statistic and only half would call 911 if they had symptoms of heart attack. Compared to men, women are less likely to receive standard of care of treatment for chest pain, less likely to be referred to a cardiologist, and less likely to be admitted to the hospital. It is our mission to educate healthcare providers about the risk of heart disease in women and empower them to be advocates for women's cardiovascular health.

This educational symposium will review the current epidemiology of cardiovascular disease in women and examine women-specific cardiovascular issues related to diagnosis and treatment. Cardiovascular disease more common in women will be discussed, including pulmonary arterial hypertension and ischemia without obstructive CAD. The management of cardiovascular complications during pregnancy will be reviewed. The current data and guidelines for lipids and diet will be discussed. State of the art therapies for structural heart disease, including aortic, mitral and tricuspid valves, with an emphasis on gender-specific outcomes, will be included. Gender differences related to atrial fibrillation, congestive heart failure and COVID-19 infection will be reviewed. Finally, the salient cardiovascular trials of 2019, 2020 and 2021 will be summarized with case-based presentations.

The objective of this symposium is to educate healthcare providers on gender-appropriate approaches in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of women with a broad range of cardiovascular diseases.
