Texas Health Dallas Launches Screening Program for Female Heart Disease
Date:2/4/2010

DALLAS, Feb. 4  /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- When Mary Gill went to bed that night, nothing would have made anyone think heart disease — not even Mary. She was thin and 42 years old. She exercised regularly, ate a healthy diet and never smoked.

It was the perfect recipe for turning a young mom into a tragic statistic.

"Heart disease never crossed my mind," she said. "Even when I woke up that night with an upset stomach, I wasn't thinking heart attack."

Then pain shot through her shoulder blades, and she started hyperventilating. She knew something was seriously wrong. Within minutes she was in the emergency department at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. She underwent emergency angioplasty to open blockages in her cardiac arteries and restore blood flow to her heart. She eventually completed three months of cardiac rehabilitation and was given a clean bill of health. Today, she takes medications and follows a heart healthy lifestyle in an effort to prevent future heart attacks.

Gill thankfully did not become one of the tragic statistics. But every year, more than 430,000 women aren't so lucky, according to the American Heart Association. They die from heart attacks, congestive heart failure and other forms of cardiovascular disease. Since 1984, the number of cardiovascular disease-related deaths among women in the United States has exceeded those of men. More than one in three female adults has some form of cardiovascular disease.

To better spot cardiovascular disease in North Texans like Gill — before potentially fatal heart attacks or other complications — Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has launched a new Heart & Vascular Wellness Program for women.
