COIRO, Camila da Luz  e  RUSCHEL, Patricia Pereira. Anxiety and pain in the post-operatory of heart surgery: is there a difference between gender?. Psicol. hosp. (São Paulo) [online]. 2019, vol.17, n.1, pp. 02-16. ISSN 2175-3547.

The study presents reflections based on a research performed with patients admitted at a hospital specialized in heart diseases, in the southern region of the country, with a sample composed of individuals of both sexes, over 18 years of age, recovering after cardiac surgery. Cardiac surgery is still the intervention of choice in many cases of heart disease, despite the advances in clinical treatment of the disease in recent years and the advent of the minimally invasive approach (Dessotte, Rodrigues, Furuya, Rossi, & Dantas, 2016). The objective of this study was to identify whether there is a difference between the genders in anxiety and pain indexes during the postoperative period. In this quantitative and transversal research, a sociodemographic questionnaire, a structured interview about the illness, the Beck Anxiety Inventory and the Visual Numerical Pain Scale was applied. 88 patients were interviewed in the postoperative period of cardiac surgery. There were not significant differences when comparing the samples.
