Introduction. Over a relatively short period, interventional technologies have become an integral part of angioneurology. One of the criteria for evaluating the efficacy of surgical treatment is quality of life, which is an integral indicator of overall health.
Objective. The study purpose was to investigate quality of life in patients who underwent transluminal balloon angioplasty with vertebral artery stenting.
Materials and methods. The study involved 50 patients with hemodynamically significant stenoses of the extracranial part of the vertebral arteries, who underwent transluminal balloon angioplasty with vertebral artery stenting. A SF-36 questionnaire was used to evaluate quality of life.
Results. Before vertebral artery stenting, low quality-of-life indicators were observed in a cohort of patients included in the study. The quality-of-life indicators associated with the physical and psychological conditions improved in the patients 6 months after vertebral artery stenting.
Conclusion. Quality of life is an independent objective multifactor indicator reflecting surgical treatment outcomes.
