In the article, “Heart Fat and Carotid Artery Atherosclerosis Progression in Recently Menopausal Women” by El Khoudary et al, the authors found that oral estrogens compared to transdermal estrogens slowed down the effect of increasing paracardial adipose tissue on the progression of atherosclerosis.  Whether it is due to the type of oral estrogen or the fact that it is an oral estrogen requires further study to confirm this finding.

In the article, “Hot Flashes are Associated with Altered Brain Function during a Memory Task” by Maki et al, it was shown using functional magnetic resonance imaging that vasomotor symptoms may affect memory performance by their effect on the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex.
