Women that develop a particular type of heart attack, ie non-ST segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS; accounting for roughly three quarters of heart attacks in females) are at high mortality risk, both in-hospital as well as post-discharge.

Wenzl and Simon Kraler et al. in The Lancet. In a more recent report of the Swiss Medical Journal, Prof. Olivier Müller comments on possible clinical implications of their newly developed GRACE 3.0 score.
