Research
Nathalie Grootenboer’s research focussed on the differences between men and women in the presentation and outcomes of non-cardiac vascular disease. Her main diseases of interest are abdominal aortic aneurysms, carotid artery stenosis and peripheral vascular disease.

Because, until recently, cardiovascular disease was thought to occur predominantly in males, women have been underrepresentated in cardiovascular studies. Treatment guidelines are therefore based on a predominantly male population and it is not certain whether these guidelines are stricly appropriate for women.
 
The aim of Nathalie’s research was to asses whether women currently receive best treatment when they suffer from cardiovascular disease or that sex-specific guidelines should be put into place for the above mentioned diseases.
