Summary Explores the experiences of older women having a sternotomy incision following cardiac surgery. Older women account for a large proportion of patients undergoing cardiac surgery each year in Australia. The context from which they face cardiac surgery is unlike that of men and of younger women, and there has been limited exploration of their experiences.
