ABSTRACT
The article presents 10-year follow-up study of the retention of work capacity after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Focusing on postoperative continuation in work life among men and women aged less than 60, the study tries to evaluate several aspects, like the factors influencing patients staying on and why people who resume work after CABG retire prematurely. 960 patients were considered for the study during a period of 18 months.
