Building our Understanding of Women’s Coronary Artery Disease

This webinar will explore our emerging understanding of coronary artery disease in women. While women can experience heart disease similar to men, we are now learning through research that women are much more likely to have ischemia with non-obstructive coronary artery disease (INOCA) due to microvascular dysfunction, coronary artery spasm, or an MI with no obstruction (MINOCA).

With these conditions, early identification is important to initiate appropriate and specific treatments. If you are a woman who has experienced one of these conditions or wish to learn more, join us to find out what we are discovering from recent research and the insights being gained regarding how to best treat and manage these conditions.
