The association between early menopause and risk of ischaemic heart disease: Influence of Hormone Therapy?

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Randomised clinical trials find no protection against development of ischaemic heart disease by use of Hormone Therapy (HT) after the age of 50 years. Observational studies suggest that early menopause is a risk factor for ischaemic heart disease. Yet, a clinical very relevant question is whether HT reduces this risk associated with early menopause.
