The purpose of the present study was to examine the relationship between psychological factors, Erectile Dysfunctional (ED) and Quality of Life (QoL) before and after Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) and Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) procedures, in an Iranian sample of cardiovascular patients. To do so, one hundred ninety patients scheduled for CABG and PTCA operations were selected and administered relevant questionnaires a day before the surgery. Subsequently, the same patients filled out the same questionnaires two months following the procedure. Data analysis showed an increase in QoL while revealing a decline in men’s sexual functioning after the PTCA procedure although no change was observed in women. Also, an improvement in psychological status of all patients was observed following both revascularization procedures.
