Abstract: 
Introduction- Many series have demonstrated that women undergoing CABG appear ‎to have higher morbidity and mortality than men, therefore this study was designed to ‎answer the questions of whether such differences actually exist or not in the pre- and ‎postoperative period‏.‏‎
‎ Material- This study was carried out from January to end of May 2000 at our cent.‎ ‏201 ‏consecutive patient undergoing CABG were selected. Exclusion criteria included ‎previous CABGS. We used antegrade and retrograde cardioplegia during surgery with ‎conventional anesthesia in all patients, any complication during the pre- and ‎postoperative and hospital stay were recorded, and data were evaluated statistically ‎using SPSS software‏.‏‎
‎ Results- 201 patients undergoing CABG were evaluated. 46% were women and 54% ‎were men with mean age of 51 years. In comparison with men, women were older, ‎had higher incidence of hypertension, diabetes, but otherwise similar for early ‎complications. However the duration of hospital stay was different, with ‏13.9±0.4 ‏days for men and 18.4 ± 1 days for women, p<0.001‎‏.‏ ‎
‎ Conclusion- In spite of similar postoperative complications and mortality in men and ‎women, the number of grafts and hospital stay was different (Iranian Heart Journal. ‎‎2002, 2003; 3(4)&4(1): 17-20)‎ ‏`‏
