Chest pain syndromes encompass a wide range of different clinical conditions, being coronary artery disease one of the most important and feared aetiology. Sex and gender disparities have been reported in pathophysiology, clinical presentations, diagnostic work-up and outcomes of patients admitted for chest pain. Biological differences in sexual hormones and neurological pain procession pathways have been proposed as contributors to disparities between men and women; however, gender-related disparities in socio-economic and psychological status have emerged as additional factors involved in these conditions. A better understanding of gender- and sex-related disparities will lead to improved clinical care and management of chest pain syndromes in both men and women. In this comprehensive review, we describe the existing knowledge regarding sex and gender-based differences in management and outcomes of chest pain syndromes in order to stimulate and promote the development of a more sex- and gender-oriented approach to these conditions.

Abstract

Chest pain syndromes encompass a wide range of different clinical conditions, being coronary artery disease one of the most important and feared aetiology. Sex and gender disparities have been reported in pathophysiology, clinical presentations, diagnostic work-up and outcomes of patients admitted for chest pain. Biological differences in sexual hormones and neurological pain procession pathways have been proposed as contributors to disparities between men and women; however, gender-related disparities in socio-economic and psychological status have emerged as additional factors involved in these conditions. A better understanding of gender- and sex-related disparities will lead to improved clinical care and management of chest pain syndromes in both men and women. In this comprehensive review, we describe the existing knowledge regarding sex and gender-based differences in management and outcomes of chest pain syndromes in order to stimulate and promote the development of a more sex- and gender-oriented approach to these conditions.
