Abstract

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and antioxidant vitamin supplements (vitamins E and C) do not provide cardiovascular benefit for postmenopausal women with known coronary heart disease. Moreover, a potential for harm exists with each of the treatments. Therefore, neither should be prescribed specifically for cardiovascular benefit for postmenopausal women with coronary heart disease.
