Abstract [en]

AIM: To describe the limitation of physical activity, the cause of limitation of physical activity and symptoms of dyspnea and chest pain before and 2 years after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in relation to a history of hypertension. METHODS: All patients from western Sweden who underwent CABG between 1988 and 1991 were approached with a questionnaire--prior to, 3 months and 2 years after CABG--evaluating the issues raised above. RESULTS: Of 2121 patients, 37% had a history of hypertension. By 3 months after CABG, physical activity tolerance had improved markedly and in a similar way for both hypertensive (p<0.001) and non-hypertensive patients (p<0.001); this level was sustained for 2 years. Absence of dyspnea increased markedly and similarly among both hypertensive and non-hypertensive patients (p < 0.001) after CABG. The presence of chest pain decreased markedly and similarly among hypertensive (p<0.001) and non-hypertensive patients (p<0.001), both 3 months and 2 years after compared to prior to the operation. CONCLUSION: There was a marked improvement in terms of physical activity and cardiovascular symptoms 3 months and 2 years after CABG as compared with the situation prior to the operation. A previous history of hypertension did not seem to affect these results.
