Differences in access to care

Slaughter PM, Bondy SJ. Can J Cardiol. 2001; 17(Suppl D):63-7.

The chapter complements and builds upon earlier chapters that address related issues, including sex differences in the prevalence of IHD, utility of diagnostic tests in women and men, and evidence of the efficacy of revascularization procedures in women.
