Gaps in prevention and diagnosis of heart and vascular disease in women exist for many reasons. Multiple challenges include recognizing unique symptoms, performing effective diagnostic testing, modifying patients’ lifestyle behaviors, and recognizing that disease may progress differently in women compared to men. Education must continue among the providers who care for women. This video library includes presentations by the Annual Women’s Heart & Vascular Symposium faculty who share insights into current research, guidelines and outcomes.

Menapause vs Manopause

Among the greatest threats to women as they age are cardiovascular disease (CVD) and coronary heart disease (CHD). Over 43 million women in the US have some form of CVD and an estimated 6.6 million women are living with CHD. Public awareness is improving but is far from widespread in women of all ages. Dr. Stephanie Coulter kicked off the Annual Women’s Heart & Vascular Symposium with a review of the rise and fall of estrogen therapy and her concerns about testosterone for manopause following the same historic fate.
