Description

Heart disease is a leading cause of death for women in the United States, yet it is still perceived as a disease of men. In fact, women are 50 percent more likely than men to be diagnosed incorrectly after having a heart attack.
Understanding differences -- from basic anatomy to the way they experience heart attack symptoms -- can help women take charge of their heart health.

Host, Jonathan Fialkow, M.D. welcomes cardiologist Andrea Vitello, M.D. who focuses on women's heart issues as part of Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute's prevention and risk reduction team.
