Abstract:


In 120 patients subjected to coronary artery surgery we have investigated employment status and work capability in relation to age, pre-operative ventricular function and extent of coronary artery disease, peri-operative infarction and post-operative angina.

The patients were followed up for 6 to 23 months (mean 10 months). Fifty-three out of 74 patients (72%) employed before the onset of angina, returned to work after operation. Return to work was more likely in patients working immediately prior to surgery and in patients less than 45 years old (P less than 0.05). Sixty patients (50%) reported a return to normal work capability, the most striking changes occurring in those less than 45 years old (P less than 0.02).

Pre-operative left ventricular (LV) function and extent of coronary disease and mode of employment did not correlate with post-operative employment status but normal LV function was related to improvement in work capability (P less than 0.02). Return to work after coronary bypass surgery is mainly due to angina relief but is also related to age and pre-operative work status.
