The patients were divided into two groups: Group A consisted of patients who underwent PCI, while Group B comprised control patients. All patients were followed up after 6 months. Data collection was conducted using the MacNew Heart Disease Health-related Quality of Life Questionnaire. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS Version 25.

Results: The mean age of patients in group A and group B was 56.9±10.8 years and 55.16±11.2 years, respectively. The MacNew scale scores for both groups showing a significant p-value of <0.05 between the two groups.
