Highlights from SCAI 2012

 

 

Dr. Sudhir Mungee, FSCAI of the University of Illinois Collge of Medicine in Peoria, IL discusses his abstract presentation at #SCAI2012 with Chris Kaiser of MedPage Today. Dr. Mungee’s institution  screened over 500 patients as part of a pilot study organized by SCAI Women in Innovations and Abbott Vascular’s Women’s Heart Health Initiative which aims to increase the referral pathway between OBGYNs and cardiologists. The abstract presentation highlighted study findings which showed that 20% of the women screened saw their OBGYN as their primary care physician, and that 13% of those screened had 3 or more cardiovascular disease risk factors they were not aware of.
