Women may have a slightly higher risk of death than men in the 30 days following an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) such as heart attack or unstable angina, according to a new study. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women, accounting for one-third of all deaths. Although several studies have shown an improvement of prognosis in women over time, overall outcomes remain worse for women compared with men, providing a strong rationale for focusing on the study of...
