Abstract : Health and sexual related quality of life (H-SQoL) of patients underwent coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) is a significant component for post-surgical counseling and rehabilitation. H-SQoL is an ignored topic of research. This study aims at assessing Health and Sexual Related Quality of Life 6-12 months after coronary ‎artery bypass graft surgery in a group of patients in Jordan. ‎A correlational, cross-sectional design used to recruit 118 patients post CABG. Data collected using structured online interview regarding Health and Sexual Related Quality of Life. The ‎level of HRQoL 6-12 months post- CABG surgery was moderate (‎53.13‎‏ ‏‎out of 100) ‎ and the sexual level ‎for both married male (73.52 out of 100) ‎and female (71.82 out of 100‎) ‎patients. Negative relationship found between time spent on mechanical ventilation and HRQoL (r = - ‎0.24, p=0.008), while ‎a ‎significant positive association between physical and mental HRQoL, with female patients reporting higher mean score (rpb ‎‎= 0.187, p=0.043). Besides, no statistically significant association was found of all socio-demographic and clinical variables with SRQoL-M (p > 0.05). The lower SRQoL indicated that need to pre-post sexual counseling services. Mental health professionals and cardiologist have to be aware of negative consequences of sexual dissatisfaction on general health and surgery outcomes.
