Abstract

 Background: Improving the QUALITY OF LIFE (QOL), as the most important goal of therapeutic interventions, is considered in the chronic diseases. This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of different treatments on QOL in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.Materials and Methods: This cohort study was performed, using the convenience sampling, on 167 patients hospitalized with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME in Kashan Shahid-Beheshti hospital during 2013-2014. Under the supervision of a cardiologist and based on the standard protolab, the QOL of the patients who were received a drug therapy, ANGIOPLASTY or bypass graft was evaluated before and two months after receiving the treatments using the short form-36 (SF-36) tools.Results: One-hundred and sixty-seven patients (mean age, 56.5±10.22) were studied. Among them 50.3% were female. ANGIOPLASTY and drug therapy had positive effects on the mental health and bodily pain dimensions and increased the total score for QOL. Moreover, drug therapy had a positive impact on the social activity dimension (P=0.01). Coronary artery bypass graft improved the role playing dimension (P=0.005). No significant difference was found in QOL among the three groups: drug therapy; ANGIOPLASTY and coronary artery bypass graft (P=0.67).Conclusion: Different therapeutic interventions improve the QOL in the ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME and can have a positive effect on some life dimensions of patients.
