Abstract

Objectives - The objectives were to compare quality of life (QoL) after first myocardial infarction with an age- and sex-adjusted normative population and to test whether the 1-month QoL had predictive properties. Design - QoL was assessed by self-administered questionnaires (SF-36 and Cardiac Health Profile) 1, 3 and 6 months after index-event. Participants were 60 consecutive patients (20% women) with a mean age of 58 +/- 7.4 years. Results - Patients greater than or equal to 59 years improved in Physical (PCS) and Mental Component Summary (MCS), scoring comparable to community norms at 6 months. However, patients < 59 years improved in PCS but not in MCS, and scored significantly below community norms in both PCS ((X) over bar = 44.7, CI 40.6-48.7 vs (X) over bar = 50.3, CI 49.3-51.4) and MCS ((X) over bar = 45.9, CI 41.8-49.9 vs (X) over bar = 51.3, CI 50.3-52.4) at 6 months. Predictors for MCS were age (p = 0.025) and Vitality (p = 0.020) both positively related to QoL. Predictors for PCS were Physical Function (p = 0.003) and CCS score (p < 0.001) where angina grade was negatively related to QoL. Conclusion - Because of impaired mental recovery in younger post-infarction patients, their need of special attention in the rehabilitation process must not be overlooked.
