Dr Arun Kochar, Senior Cardiologist, addressed 34 women doctors of tricity, on ‘Women and Heart Disease’. He said that women are generally unaware of the fact that they have high propensity of developing cardiovascular disease during their lifetime. There is a belief that heart disease occurs less in women and they are protected on account of female hormones. On the contrary, heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. He said, almost two third of women who die suddenly due to heart disease have no previous symptoms.
