STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — Director of Cardiac Research at Good Samaritan Hospital, Dr. Robert Kloner, stopped by KCAL9 Monday to discuss the factors, signs, symptoms and prevention of heart attacks in women.

An estimated 400,000 women die every year of heart disease, which is 10 times more than those who die of breast cancer, according to the American Heart Association.

Rosie O’Donnell started the tough conversation about heart attacks after she suffered what doctors called the “widow maker”.

O’Donnell expressed on Twitter her experience and the importance of knowing the symptoms and preventions of a heart attack.
