Graphic: Heart in the human body [19/05/2015] There is a statistically significant difference in how women and men are treated following a heart attack. These gender differences are reflected in the rate of risk factor control, which was lower in women, and in the rate of hospital readmission for a further heart attack, which was higher in women than in men. The conclusions are reported in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.Heart attack: Differences between women and men - Read more
