Abstract [en]

Patients in western Sweden who underwent CABG from 1988 to 1991 received prior to coronary angiography and 2 and 5 years after CABG a questionnaire, in which they were asked about symptoms of chest pain and dyspnea. In all, 1,226 patients answered the inquiry prior to CABG, 1,531 patients 2 years and 1,359 patients 5 years after surgery. Both in terms of chest pain and dyspnea there was a marked improvement 2 and 5 years after CABG as compared with prior to surgery. However, between 2 and 5 years after surgery there was a minor deterioration, both regarding chest pain and dyspnea. The most statistically significant preoperative predictors for the occurrence of chest pain more than twice a week 5 years after surgery were concomitant valvular heart disease and obesity.
