Treatment to Ward Off Stroke Less Effective in Women: Study – India Blooms

Read article - Quotes Niveditta Ramkumar, Guarini '15, TDI '15, in a feature story about a study she led that found that women benefit less from a surgery used to treat carotid artery disease, a key risk factor for stroke. "Men and women are different and sometimes their disease might call for a different treatment approach," says Ramkumar. "Because our study found women are getting more strokes than men, it may mean their treatment, in this case endarterectomy, is not as effective in women as it is in men."
