Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


In the United States alone, more than 1 million cardiac catheterizations are performed each year, with approximately 600,000 patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A meaningful perspective on the future of PCI in women requires not only reflection on some of the major developments in interventional cardiology but also a look back more generally at the changing patterns in the burden of coronary disease in the population and at the gains accrued in understanding and combating cardiovascular disease in women.
