Abstract

This review provides updates in gender disparities in the symptom profile, risk factors, quality and timeliness of guideline-based medical care, and clinical outcomes, including mortality, bleeding, and vascular complications, in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). While AMI continues to be a leading cause of mortality in both men and women, significant gender differences exist in presentation, management, and outcomes. Women with AMI are older, suffer atypical symptoms, and more often present with HF and cardiogenic shock. Delays in medical care and hence longer ischemic times exist in women, partly due to decreased awareness and lack of symptom recognition. Women continue to be less likely to receive guideline-based pharmacological therapies and revascularization than men with AMI. While women suffer from significantly higher risk-adjusted rates of bleeding, vascular complications, and short-term mortality, the risk-adjusted rates of long-term mortality remain similar between men and women. Further investigations and efforts are needed to aggressively modify risk factors, reduce delays in care, and address the higher rates of adverse events seen in women with AMI. Significant sex disparities are prevalent in presentation, management, and outcomes of adults with AMI. Further investigations and efforts are needed to aggressively modify risk factors, reduce delays in care, and address the higher rates of adverse events seen in women with AMI.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 47. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 23 February 2019.
All research outputs
#337,273
of 12,980,854 outputs
Outputs from Current Cardiology Reports
#5
of 536 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#14,590
of 268,542 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current Cardiology Reports
#1
of 17 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,980,854 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 97th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 536 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.2. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 268,542 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 17 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its contemporaries.
