ESC Congress 2022 Barcelona

Important sex-related differences in heart failure exist. For example, women are drastically over-represented among patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. This is particularly important as no medication classes have been shown to reduce cardiovascular or all-cause mortality in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. In addition, women are also more likely than men to present with and die from cardiogenic shock after acute myocardial infarction. Furthermore, certain cardiomyopathies are specific to women (peripartum cardiomyopathy) or affect predominantly women (takotsubo syndrome).

CHAIRPERSONS:

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

Attendees will learn about sex- and gender-specific aspects of pathophysiology and risk factors for heart failure with a special focus on the role of social determinants of health. In addition, this session will inform about sex- and gender-based disparities in treatment and diagnosis of heart failure in women and how to address these in daily clinical practice. A special focus will lay on cardiomyopathies specific to or predominant in women.
