A new study shows that blood vessels, including large and small arteries, in women, age much faster in women than in men. This is the first time this finding has been reported. The study will be helpful in showing how women are at a different risk for cardiovascular disease, both with respect to the type and the timing, than men.
This study is yet another reminder to physicians that many aspects of our cardiovascular evaluation and therapy need to be tailored specifically for women.
