Background: Cardiovascular diseases are more prevalent in the elderly as well as the need for surgical intervention. It is also known that the complication rate is higher in this population, which may influence the clinical outcomes in the postoperative period of cardiac surgery. Objective: To evaluate whether age influences the clinical outcomes of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. Methodology: This is a prospective cohort. The patients were divided into two groups: elderly (60 years of age or older) and young (less than 60 years of age). Clinical variables were compared between the groups, such as postoperative pulmonary complications, comorbidities rate, time of cardiopulmonary bypass, mechanical ventilation, intensive care unit stay, hospital stay and death. Quantitative variables were expressed as mean and standard deviation and their differences were verified using the independent Student t test or Mann-Whitney test. Results: A total of 99 patients were included, 58 males (59%) and mean age 58 ± 9 years. There was an impact of age on a primary outcome, with a statistically significant difference (p = 0.02) with 6 events in the elderly group and 3 in the young. Regarding the clinical outcomes, there was a difference between groups in intensive care unit time variables (3.3 ± 1.4 vs. 2.5 ± 0.7, (p < 0.001)), hospital time (p < 0.001) and incidence of pneumonia with 11 in the elderly group versus 7 in the young group (p = 0.02). Conclusion: Based on these findings, it is concluded that age negatively influences clinical outcomes, especially death, pneumonia and length of hospital stay.
