Each year, 500,000 women die of complications from cardiovascular disease making it the leading killer of American women (American Heart Association, 1999). Until recently, research concerning treatment protocols including medications and medical interventions such as angioplasty and surgery, have focused on the male population. Because of the recognized significance of cardiovascular deaths in women, research on women in this subject area has increased. This research includes pinpointing differences in risk factors, presenting symptoms, treatments (including time-to-intervention), and outcomes between male and female populations. With several research studies having recently emerged, a literature review is appropriate to determine the current state of the science in this topic. The focus of this literature review was to determine the state of the science in cardiovascular disease risk factor determination in women. The literature review sought to answer the following questions: 1) What is the current research concerning risk factors in women with cardiovascular disease? 2) What conclusions can be drawn about current research in the area of risk factor determination in women with cardiovascular disease? 3) What investigations need to be conducted to bridge gaps in the research on risk factors in women with cardiovascular disease? The following analysis methods were employed: 1) A literature review of health care sciences journals via Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), MEDLINE, HealthSTAR, Ovid Biomedical and Nursing Journal Collections. The literature search inclusion criteria were: a) primary research article; b) research concerning cardiovascular disease risk factors; c) refereed journal research; and d) published no earlier than 1985. 2) Analysis and synthesis of research results are organized and presented on risk factors including analysis of variables measured and significant results. 3) Analysis of research gaps in literature and inconclusive evidence in risk factors are presented and suggestions for future research are made.
