A retrospective study found that women continue to have a higher mortality and morbidity rate after CABG compared with men. This has historically been the case, as women are often referred to surgery later than men and have more cardiovascular risk factors. Researchers emphasize that since this trend has not changed, there needs to be greater action to increase the quality of care for women who require CABG surgery. Read the original study, published in JAMA Surgery.
