Sex Differences in the Pathophysiology, Presentation, Diagnosis and Management of Cardiac Diseases provides contemporary data on sex-specific differences in pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation and management of cardiovascular diseases, filling a void for clinicians in practice and training. Co-authored by renowned experts in the field (and guideline writers), the text presents  state-of-the-art reviews of each topic, encompassing the full spectrum of CVD in men and women. Sex-specific guidelines-based recommendations are highlighted when available. Tailored to meet the needs of busy clinicians and researchers, this text provides concise data, allowing practitioners to more effectively and holistically care for women at risk.
  • Presents a comprehensive, state-of-the-art update on women's heart disease that will serve as an indispensable resource for clinicians and researchers
  • Enables readers to understand sexual dimorphism in pathophysiology, diagnosis, management and outcomes in the full spectrum of cardiovascular issues, including ischemic heart disease, valvular disorders, arrhythmias and heart failure
  • Provides concise, evidence-based practical reviews of medical topics, with attention paid to the role of behavioral health
