Jose “Pepe” Alvarez, Jr., M.D. Memorial Lecture on Vascular Disease: Vascular Disease in Women – Is There a Difference?
Women with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) are more likely to present without symptoms. As a consequence, their vascular disease has been underdiagnosed and undertreated. As the population ages, the prevalence of PAD will increase significantly. There has been an increased effort to delineate the effects of sex on the clinical burden and risks presented by PAD. Better knowledge of these effects will hopefully result in the development of strategies to achieve sex-specific cardiovascular risk reduction and improvement in overall quality of life for women.
Join Dr. Julie Ann Freischlag as she discusses how to formulate a preventative clinical plan in the management of vascular disease in women.
