Background: the study is a prospective study to evaluate the quality of life differences between minimal invasive coronary artery surgery(MICAS), mini sternotomy coronary bypass surgery( mini-CABG), conventional bypass surgery ( CABG) and post drug eluting stent angioplasty (PCI) at day 3 and day 30 post procedure. Methods: a total of 100 patients undertook the postoperative questionnaire at post op day 3 and again day 30. they were presented the european quality of life questionnaire. 25 patients in each group took the questionnaire. Results: A total of 100 patients were given he questionnaire with 25 in each of the four groups. the youngest was a 33 year old and the oldest was an 74year old. the average age across the groups was 55.5 years, there were 85 males and 15 females. the questionnaire was given to them on post op day 3 and again at day 30. the patients in the MICAS group of surgery had the best health scale percentage of 99% followed by the mini sternotomy group at 94% followed by the PCI group (76%) with conventional CABG group( 73%) being the worst in terms of QOL scores. Conclusion: Quality of life score as an end point, minimal access coronary bypass surgery(MICAS) is superior to conventional CABG and PCI . MICAS can now be a viable option for surgical revascularisation in all patients with coronary artery disease.
