Abstract

The most common procedure used in cardiovascular medicine is percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) that can create some physiological complications, such as decreasing heart rate, mechanical issues, and cardiac arrest among patients.
Objective: To determine the frequency of non-ischemic chest pain and its relation with socio-demographic features amongst post PCI patients in a tertiary care hospital in Karachi.
Methods: This analytical crosssectional study was led at National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) Hospital, Karachi. A total of 195 patients with Post PCI non-ischemic chest pain were recruited by using the Numerical rating scale (NRS). Non-probability purposive sampling technique was used and permission was taken from Institutional Review Board (IRB) of DUHS and Ethical Review Committee (ERC) of NICVD. Data were analyzed by using SPSS Version-26.0. Percentages and frequency were used for categorical variables while, a chi-square test was applied to check the associations of non-ischemic chest pain with demographic features of the patients.
Results: In this study, 63.60% of the participants were male. Most of the participants (75.4%) were married. Non-ischemic chest pain was found significantly associated with age, gender, marital status, history of disease and drug history with p-values <0.001, 0.001, <0.001, <0.001, <0.001 respectively. The majority of the participants (90.26%) were suffered with non-ischemic chest
pain.
