Cardiovascular disease (CVD) has over the last decade emerged as the single most important cause for death worldwide [1]. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a very common revascularisation procedure for coronary artery disease (CAD). Despite advancement in surgical technology, PCI is associated with a range of post-procedural complications, including physical [2] and psychological morbidity [3]. Research findings are inconclusive as to the impact of PCI on quality of life post-procedure. There also appears to be no studies that have examined the notion of personal resilience in this group of patients.
The aim of this longitudinal prognostic study was to evaluate cardiac outcomes including - health related quality of life (HRQoL), personal resilience, mental health and adherence behaviours in patients who have had undergone a PCI measured at two time points (6 months and 12 months) post-intervention.
