[Work capacity of patients after resection of post-infarction heart aneurysm].

The paper provides data of a ten-year follow-up of 51 patients who underwent postinfarction left ventricular aneurysmectomy in the All-Union Surgery Research Center with a view to verifying the degree of working capacity loss. In the long-term period, out of them 37 persons (72.5%) had Group II disability, 10 (19.6%) had easier managerial jobs (4 persons (7.8%) had not worked before surgery) and 3 (5.9%) retired on their old-age pension. The surgical therapy for postinfarction cardiac aneurysm significantly improves the functional status and physical working capacity in 72.5% of the patients.
