The goal of this thesis is to describe gender differences in coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery associated with the outcome parameters mortality, physical functioning (as an indicator for subjective health-related quality of life) and depression. The description of results is divided into three main parts. In section 4.1, data from the full sample are analyzed with a focus on the outcome parameters physical functioning and mortality. In section 4.2, data of the continuer sample — the patients who contributed to all three measurement points — are analyzed, focusing on quality of life and depression. Finally, in section 4.3, the predictive relationship between physical functioning and depression is examined.
