****CONNIE AUDIO ON CART****
In general, women get heart disease about ten years later than men and have their first heart attack about 20 years later.
But when women DO have heart attacks more frequently they are fatal.
Typical treatments produce more complications for women than they do for men.
Clot busting drugs used to treat acute heart attacks are more likely to produce fatal complications.
Bypass surgery is also more likely to be fatal.
One reason is women were traditionally excluded from clincial studies of treatments.

In terms of treatment for heart disease, women have one advantage over men-- estrogen.
