The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships among the social support, depression, and health-related quality of life and the factors affecting the health-related quality of life in patients with coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). The subjects consisted of 134 patients who had received CABG from S general hospitals in Seoul, Korea, and the results were analyzed using the SPSS Win 21.0 program. The physical component summary (PCS) was significantly different depending on the age (F=4.616, p=.004), gender (t=3.657, p<.001), education (F=7.688, p=.001), current job (t=-4.363, p<.001), spouse (t=-3.065, p=.003), and underlying disease (F=3.078, p=.030) of the subjects. There were differences in the scores for the mental component summary (MCS) according to their gender (t=2.243, p=.027) and monthly income (F=2.821, p=.041). A significant negative correlation was found between social support and depression (r=-.415, p<.001). Social support had a statistically significant positive correlation with the MCS (r=.261, p=.002). Significant negative correlations were found between depression and the PCS (r=-.459, p<.001) and MCS (r=-.554, p<.001). The depression and underlying disease accounted for 36.7% of the variance in the PCS. The depression accounted for 34.1% of the variance in the MCS. Based on these results, nurses should develop nursing intervention programs for patients who have undergone CABG which take into consideration their depression.
