Featured Open Lecture: March-April, 2024

This month’s EAS open lecture aligns with the webinar on Women & Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). In light of this, we are pleased to present a lecture on this topic by Prof. Lale Tokgözoğlu, originally delivered at the EAS Congress in 2021.

Prof. Tokgözoğlu is a Professor of Cardiology at Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey. In this lecture entitled “From risk factors to acute coronary syndrome in women,” she enlightens us on the differences in cardiovascular risk between men and women. To this end, she dives into epidemiology, risk, and psychosocial factors, hormonal and lifestyle differences leading to sex disparities in CVD presentation and management.
