Gender‐Based Issues in Interventional Cardiology: A Consensus Statement From the Women in Innovations (WIN) Initiative

SCAI Endorsed Women's Health

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality in women, yet studies have suggested that it is often under‐recognized. Of particular concern is the apparent suboptimal treatment of women in comparison to men, with less revascularization and use of evidence‐based medications. The Women in Innovations group of cardiologists aims to highlight these issues and change perceptions to optimize the treatment of female patients with CVD, to support future research, and to encourage and guide the training of female interventional cardiologists.
