Abstract: Background: It is known about the men prevalence among patients with cardiac diseases. While studies have also documented about depression relations to cardiovascular diseases, depressed postcardiac surgery (CS) patients' health related quality of life (HRQOL) and the effect of gender on it remains uncertain. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate HRQOL and the gender association with different HRQOL aspects in depressed post-cardiac surgery patients. Method: A convenience sample of 460 post-surgery patients was recruited from the outpatient department from January 2012 to December 2014 two months after CS. Patients completed instruments that included a SCL-90R (Symptom Checklist Revised) depression scale and nine SF-36 (Medical Outcomes Study 36-item Short Form Health Survey) scales, which define nine different aspects of HRQOL. Only the patients with increased depression scale score and without contraindications were included into the study. Total sample consisted of 153 patients. Data were analyzed in the whole group and in two subgroups – females and males. Analyses used descriptive statistics, including mean and standard deviations; independent-sample Student's t-tests, linear and logistic regression analyses. P b 0.05 was considered as statistically significant. Results: The mean score of depression scalewasmoderate in the group, it didn't differ between the subgroups. The Results have demonstrated the low HRQOL according to the three aspects (limitations for physical and mental problems, general health perception). The mean scores of mental health, energy/vitality and general health perception scale scores were significantly lower in the female subgroup. The significant relations of depression to three SF-36 scales in whole group; to five SF- 36 scales in the female subgroup; and to three ones in the male subgroup were found. All associations were stronger in the female subgroup. According to the logistic regression analysis a worse
