Discontinuation of postmenopausal hormone therapy elevates cardiac, stroke death risk

November 16, 2017

Read the Perspective from JoAnn V. Pinkerton, MD, NCMP

In the first year after discontinuation of postmenopausal hormone therapy, the risk for cardiac and stroke death increases, particularly among women aged younger than 60 years, according to findings published in Menopause.

“Associations between the long-term use of postmenopausal hormone therapy and risks of cardiovascular diseases have been studied for decades. The data are not uniform, perhaps partly due to differences in hormone therapy regimens and study populations,” Minttu M. Venetkoski, MD, from the department of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Helsinki and Helsinki University Hospital, Finland, and colleagues wrote.
