Cardiovascular disease and not cancer is the number one killer of women in the US.
In women, the presentation, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of coronary heart disease are different than men.
For example, typical angina pectoris (AP) is the most common clinical manifestation of coronary heart disease (CHD) in men. However, the usual presentation of CHD in women is not chest discomfort; rather the presence of other symptoms such as shortness of breath, profound fatigue, weakness, lightheadedness, nausea, diaphoresis, altered mental status, etc.
At Buena Park Heart Center, we have Dr. Caceres and his team of healthcare professionals to deliver a comprehensive and unique heart care program approach to the cardiovascular medical conditions in women.
