Abstract: The role of perioperative factors in the excess mortality among women after coronary artery bypass grafting shifts the focus of attention from the selection of women for the operation to the in-hospital experience. Improving the outcome for women will entail efforts to prevent complications in the perioperative period.

“…With the increasing of BMI also comorbidty increases [16,17]. There are major differences in the risk profile of female patients compared with the profile of male patients [18,19]. The great majority of studies show that diabetes is 40% to 50% more common in female patients than male patients undergoing CABG [20,21].…”

“…2,3 Several reasons for a worse outcome in female patients have been proposed. [4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13] Female patients who undergo CABG are generally older and smaller than their male counterparts. Female patients also have more preoperative comorbidities, such as diabetes and anemia.…”

“…The outcome of female patients after adult cardiac surgery, however, has been reported to be less favourable compared with the outcome of male patients. Especially, in-hospital mortality risk has been reported to be higher in female patients 3–11. In addition, there is an increasing awareness of the male-female differences in the timing of diagnosis in the disease process, as well as the disease presentation 12.…”

“…In addition, there is an increasing awareness of the male-female differences in the timing of diagnosis in the disease process, as well as the disease presentation 12. Most studies addressing male-female differences have focused on coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, and little is known on outcomes in patients undergoing aortic valve (AV) surgery or concomitant CABG/AV surgery 3–11 13…”
