  1. Rose Questionnaire angina in younger men and women : Gender differences in the relationship to cardiovascular risk factors and other reported symptoms.

    Article - En anglais

    Cross-sectional data from the Whitehall II study baseline were used to identify factors that may lead to the high levels of Rose angina reporting in women. 134 (4.0%) of 3350 women and 164 (2.4%) of 6830 men reported angina (P<0.001).

    Women with Rose angina had a poorer cardiovascular risk profile (degree of obesity, serum cholesterol and apolipoprotein B, blood pressure) and more electrocardiogram abnormalities (ST and T changes) than women without angina, but the associations were generally weaker than in men.

    Women who reported many other physical symptoms had a high prevalence of Rose angina (9.7%). Adjustment for symptom reporting reduced the age-adjusted gender difference to odds ratio (OR)=0.93 (95% confidence interval [CI] : 0.56-1.56) for subjects with no symptoms, and to OR=1.42 (95% CI=1.05-1.90) for subjects at the upper quartile of symptom score.

    Among women a high level of general symptom reporting was associated with General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) minor psychiatric morbidity (51.9% prevalence), but GHQ caseness does not appear to be a predictor of Rose angina (OR 1.22 [0.67-2.21]) in this group.

    Coronary artery disease risk is raised in women with Rose angina, and this remains true in groups with high levels of general symptom reporting.
