Background:Patients’ perception about the status of their current health and its direct measurement has become vital among researchers measuring outcomes. Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) scoring systems have been used as the objective measurement of performance status in various cardiovascular diseases. Objective: Our aim of the study was to determine the HRQoL of the patients undergoing angioplasty procedure.Materials and Methods: In this prospective interventional study period, all consecutive patients treated with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI), due to myocardial infarction. EQ5D questionnaire was introduced to them and the responses were collected by self response/interview method. Same procedure was repeated at 1 month follow-up. At the baseline, mean utility and visual analog score was relatively low. Results: In the conditions of anterior wall, inferior wall myocardial infarction conditions, mean utility value and VAS was improved after the intervention.Conclusions:The present study sh ows the prominent changes occurring in mobility and pain domains and moderate changes in usual activity, self care and anxiety domains.
