Background: Coronary heart disease (CHI) is the single largest cause of death in developed countries and is one of the leading causes of disease burden in developing countries as well.

Purpose of the Study: The objective of this study was to determine the quality of the patient after CABG and PCI and to determine which procedure has better outcomes.

Material and Method: A comparative cross-sectional study was carried out at Shifa International Hospital Islamabad for six months. In this study 50, post-operative CABG and 50 post-operative PCI patients who had procedures from 1 to 3 months were included through the non-probability convenience sampling technique. Data about socio-demographics were collected through self-structure questionnaires, cognition level was checked through the Mini-Mental Examination scale, Physical activities were assessed through the New York Heart Classification system and quality of life was assessed through RAND-36.

Result: The results of the study show that the health-related quality of life of participants of PCI was better than CABG patients. In RAND 36 four domains showed similar quality of life i.e. Role Limitation due to physical health (p = 0.22), Role Limitation due to an emotional problem (p = 0.35), emotional wellbeing (p = 0.83), social functioning (p = 0.55), whereas in the General Health, Physical Functioning. Bodily Pain and energy/fatigue subscales PCI group showed better quality of life (p < 0.05).

Conclusion: This study concluded that the quality of life in cardiac patients after PCI was better than CABG patients.
