About the Book

Research suggests that women fare worse than men after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. This study investigates sex differences in rates and predictors of depression after CABG surgery in 72 men and 65 women, using the cognitive adaptation theory index (CATI). A high CATI score reflects optimism, mastery and self-esteem. Consenting patients undergoing elective, isolated, first CABG surgery were interviewed ≤ 28 days before surgery and between 6 to 12 weeks after surgery. Women had significantly more depressive symptoms than men pre-CABG (P = 0.0001), but not post-CABG; and depressive symptoms in women improved almost 6-fold more than in men (P = 0.008), even after controlling for predetermined baseline characteristics (P = 0.01). The CATI was a significant independent predictor of depressive symptoms after CABG; however, there were no sex differences. Women benefited from CABG surgery as much or more than men in terms of their mental health.
