“Higher rates of adverse events among women with obstructive coronary artery disease, regardless of ethnicity, as well as high rates of angina readmission, highlight the need for more targeted interventions to reduce the burden of angina because this presentation is clearly not benign.”

Congrats to Dr. Karin Humphries and team whose research on women with obstructive CAD was recently published in the special ‪#‎GoRedforWomen‬ edition of Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes. The article, entitled “Sex and Ethnic Differences in Outcomes of Acute Coronary Syndrome and Stable Angina Patients With Obstructive Coronary Artery Disease“, was co-authored by ICVHealth’s Epidemiologist Dr. Mona Izadnegahdar, ICVHealth’s Senior Statistician Ms. May Lee, and a number of the centre’s close colleagues. The special Go Red for Women issue features a number of new findings specific to women’s cardiovascular health outcomes.
