Abstract

Relative long-term survival after CABG was poorer in female compared to male patients. This tendency was kept or strengthened when only those less than 70 years of age at surgery were investigated. Lower female survival was most likely due to more comorbidity in female patients. Relative survival was lower in patients <70 years.
