Woman's Heart Health
Women’s Heart Health New York Cardiovascular Associates is committed to improving the cardiovascular health of women.

Every year, more women die of cardiovascular disease than men. In fact, one out of every two women dies of heart disease, resulting in half a million deaths a year.

There is a growing body of knowledge about women and cardiovascular disease. Our specialists in women’s heart health use this knowledge to provide advanced, effective cardiac care for women.

Our team includes cardiologists who are experts in women’s heart health. We recognize that women are unique, and often experience different symptoms of heart disease than men. Our mission is to improve the cardiovascular health of women by offering personalized, comprehensive care for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Women and Heart Disease / Signs of Heart Problems in Women Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the United States, with over a third, or 421,918 deaths each year (Roger, 2011). This represents more female lives than were claimed by cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and accidents combined (Roger, 2011). After first recognizing a heart attack, within one year, 26% of women vs. 19% of men will die, and 18% of women vs. 8% of men who survive are diagnosed with heart failure within 5 years (Roger 2011). Yet, most available data suggest that women are less likely than men to receive appropriate treatment after a heart attack (Mosca 2011, Cho 2008) and even in the current era receive less aggressive care (Cho 2008).
