CABG can affect health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and it can take a long time to improve. The following question was raised: ‘How long does it take for the HRQoL of patients with a Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CBAG) to increase?' The aim was to analyze the recent scientific production of HRQoL in cardiovascular patients with CABG. The PRISMA approach was used and we examined articles from Scopus, EBSCO and ProQuest that were published between 2014 - 2018. We used “health related quality of life”, restricted our search to “coronary artery bypass graft” and used “after” in the title, keywords and abstract connected by the Boolean operator “AND”. SF-36 was used to assess the HRQoL and it increased within six months after CABG. This was influenced by self-control, obesity, age, gender, emotions and personality. Improving the patient’s quality of life is key for the nurses to control so then the heart surgery patients become prosperous and thus reduce their morbidity and mortality.
