The Challenges of Health Disparity and Cardiovascular Outcomes
Risk and operative mortality after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) have traditionally been characterized in terms of nondemographic, nonsocioeconomic, biological variables. More recently, increasing attention has been directed to the impact of sex on the pathology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of coronary artery disease. As a result, sex has been definitively identified as an important predictor of cardiovascular surgical outcomes, including operative mortality after CABG.
