Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss Heart Disease in Women.

The presenter will discuss statistics regarding cardiovascular disease and gender disparities in treatment.  As part of that discussion, she will also review gender related differences in the
clinical presentation of AMI and CVD risk factors.  There are some morphologic differences in CAD
in women that need to be addressed including microvascular disease.  And finally, Dr. Mehta will plan to define what is MINOCA (MI in nonobstructive CAD) and present 3 cases reviewing different
presentations of MINOCA.
