ABSTRACT

Background: Background: Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally, representing 31% of global deaths in 2016. Quality of life (QoL) is used as a criterion for treatment outcome evaluation in cardiology. This study aims to explore patientsÂ’ QoL who underwent open cardiac surgeries in King Faisal Cardiac Center-King Abdulaziz Medical City-Western Region of Saudi Arabia during the year 2015-2017. Methods: A cross-sectional retrospective study was done at King Faisal Cardiac Center. A convenient sample was used by identifying all patients who underwent open cardiac surgery between the period of June 2015 till May 2017. 163 subjects were eligible for our study, of which 94 were valid for analysis. The participants received the SF-36 questionnaire, proven to evaluate the QoL; The survey is divided into eight significant domains reported as mean scores. The correlation was done using the Mann-Whitney U test, using a cutoff p-value of 0.05. Results: The results revealed that subscales of physical functioning, role limitations due to physical problems, and role limitations due to emotional problems were the lowest means of the eight domains of QOL. However, the mental health / emotional well-being and the pain subscales were the highest of them all. Conclusion: The present study results indicate that the QoL of patients who underwent cardiac surgery is negatively affected. The immediate postoperative duration is a vital factor that impacts the long-term QoL; therefore, hospital services need to increase their efforts regarding this critical period.
