Upon completion of this CNE activity, participants should be able to:
MANAGEMENT CONSIDERATIONS FOR PATIENTS WITH SIHD
- Describe the goals of therapy in patients with chronic stable angina
- Review the results from major clinical trials of anti-ischemic agents and vasculoprotective options and the prognosis of those on medical therapy
- Discuss current thinking on use of optimal medical therapy versus surgical and interventional approaches in the management of patients with chronic stable angina
WOMEN AND SIHD
- Describe the gender-based epidemiologic trends and the health and economic burden of stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD), in particular chronic stable angina
- Discuss approaches to risk stratification for women with SIHD, specifically chronic stable angina, and their probability of a coronary event
- Discuss the important pathophysiologic factors in chronic stable angina in women
- Review current thinking on use of optimal medical therapy versus surgical and interventional approaches plus optimal therapy in the management of women with chronic stable angina
CLINICAL PERSPECTIVES IN SIHD: A CASE-BASED APPROACH

- Discuss evolving understanding of the heterogeneous pathophysiology of SIHD
- Review the results from major clinical studies of anti-ischemic agents and the latest updates on guideline-directed medical therapy
