In this important article published in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery by Drs. Preventza et al, they report on the sex, racial and ethnic disparities in cardiovascular trials in the US. The authors conclude that targeted focus and leadership is needed in addressing these disparities to ensure that the population studied in cardiovascular trials is consistent with the patient population that we treat.
