Women Receive Less Surgical Revascularization Because of Late Diagnoses, Not Gender Bias
from Cardiovascular Business
A study published Sept. 28 in the Annals of Thoracic Surgery is debunking the myth that women receive less surgical revascularization for coronary artery disease than men due to gender bias. For the study, researchers analyzed data from more than 1,200 heart disease patients between 1990 and 2015 and found that age and delayed diagnoses, rather than a sex bias, is what prevents more women from being referred for revascularization.
