Circulation Inaugural Go Red For Women Issue 2017

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death among women, a fact widely recognized for years. Yet, the significance of heart disease in women has been underappreciated, and women are significantly underrepresented in cardiovascular clinical research.

This inaugural Go Red for Women issue of Circulation is a new effort to address the menace of heart and vascular disease in women. The issue celebrates contemporary research developments that guide care provided to women with cardiovascular disorders. Studies range from the influence of pregnancy on cardiovascular risk to a deeper understanding of variation in outcomes by sex after myocardial infarction.

Issue Highlights:
  • Sex-based differences in cardiovascular biomarkers
  • Impaired coronary flow reserve in women and CV risk
  • Sex differences in post MI angina and rehospitalization
  • Pregnancy characteristics and CVD incidence and outcomes
  • Arrhythmia and pregnancy
  • Faculty rank among male and female US academic cardiologists
  • Several other research letters and viewpoints from leaders in the field


Listen to the Podcast summary of this issue, which features Dr Sharon C. Reimold, the issue’s editor.

Read the Circulation Go Red For Women issue online.

We hope you enjoy this issue of Circulation and will apply its messages to the care and management of women with cardiovascular disease and to ongoing investigative initiatives.
