Abstract

Sex differences in the characteristics of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) have been described. Women present more frequently than men with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI),1 have atypical symptoms,2 more frequently have non-obstructive coronary artery disease (NOCAD),2-4 and less frequently receive evidence-based therapies.1, 2

In this study, we assessed differences in the evidence-based treatment received by men and women with non-ST-elevation ACS (NSTEACS) and in their outcomes (in-hospital and at 6-month follow-up). We also separately assessed these differences in patients with documented coronary artery disease (CAD).
