Abstract

No proven data demonstrate a benefit from HRT in patients after CABG surgery. Results from a randomized clinical trial indicate increased risk for thrombophlebitis, a serious condition in the post - CABG surgery patient. Patients should not be routinely treated with HRT after CABG surgery because there are no data to support that HRT improves outcome, but there is proof that it may cause harm.
