Differences in men and women in coronary artery disease, systemic hypertension and their treatment.


Various studies have shown that women with coronary artery diseases are treated quite differently from men, although the reasons for these differences are not easily discernible and may be based on misconceptions. Furthermore, although the attributable risk percentage for cardiovascular complications of hypertension is higher in women than in men, little information on treating hypertension in women is available. There is cause for concern owing to some findings that white women may be harmed by antihypertensive treatment unless that treatment differs from that of men. Consensus on the importance of this finding has not been reached.
