Wenger, MD raditionally, coronary heart disease was considered a problem for men. As a consequence, women were understudied, underdiagnosed, and un- T dertreated, with adverse outcomes. With the advent of representation of women in clinical research studies and the elucidation of gender-based differ- ences in the recognition and management of a spectrum of aspects of coronary heart disease, the favorable outcomes have been stunning.
