God livskvalitet efter hjärtoperation. Bedöms lika av patient och anhörig

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In a series of 83 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting for angina, perceived QOL (quality of life) was rated by the patients and their spouses, preoperatively and at two and 12 months postoperatively, using the SWED-QUAL instrument. One year after surgery, QOL had improved to a level which might be expected of a normal population comparable in age and gender distribution. Good correlation existed between patient and spouse ratings, especially on physical measures.
