DOTTI RIOS, María Gabriela. Psychosocial Impact Expressed by Women after Coronary Endovascular Treatment. Revista urug. enferm. (En línea) [online]. 2023, vol.18, n.2, e201.  Epub Dec 01, 2023. ISSN 2301-0371.

The main objective of this research has been to investigate the psychosocial changes expressed by having had Montevidean women between 20 and 50 years of age treated at the National Institute of Cardiac Surgery after one year of endovascular coronary treatment. To respond to this purpose, it was determined whether the women in the sample expressed having gone through psychosocial changes after one year of having received the treatment and proceeded to describe such changes. Phenomenological qualitative research was conducted with semi-structured interviews through convenience sampling. The information was interpreted and systematized with content analysis, developing categories and subcategories. The participation of the women interviewed was confidential and voluntary, after signing an informed consent. In the transcription and subsequent reading of the interviews, 5 categories emerged: recognition of symptoms, repercussion of the disease on their relationship at the family level, repercussion of the disease on their relationship at the social and work level, psychological aspects (with the subcategories psychological repercussion of the pathology and experience of the disease - adaptation process) and self-care. The analysis highlights that the symptoms reported by women are not the classic ones, not recognizing them as a heart problem and having a delay in the consultation. The experiences during the health process -disease and self-care- denote in some of them a lack of awareness. The process of adapting to the situation is a protective factor for your mental health. All the women mourned for their lost health at different times.
