BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular diseases are the most common cause of mortality and morbidity in developed countries, affecting not only the physical health but also psychological and social health as well. For the evaluation of the health related quality of life (HRQoL) standard evaluations are being used. Robotic hybrid coronary revascularization (RHCR) is a combination of percutaneous coronary intervention and a robotic hybrid coronary revascularization. The aim of this study was to assess the quality of life in patients who underwent RHCR at King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center in Jeddah using the generic SF-36 questionnaire.
METHODS: A cross-sectional study that included a 36 patients, 17 of which, underwent RHCR, and 19 underwent conventional CABG. The primary endpoint was the difference in HRQoL after either procedures as measured by the Sf-36.
RESULTS: Robotic-assisted HCR it was superior in 3 out of 8 domains, physical functioning (p= <.001), role limitations due to physical health (p= .044), role limitations due to emotional problems (p= .019), meanwhile pain (p= .668), energy and fatigue (p= .518), social functioning (p= .689), emotional well-being (p= .388), and general health (p= .241), were not statistically significant.
CONCLUSIONS: Our data revealed that RHCR is a revascularization method that is associated with better outcomes in multiple HRQoL domains when compared with conventional CABG. These domains include physical functioning, physical health, and role limitations due to emotional problems.
