This study was aimed at determining the influences of psychosocial, sociodemographic and clinical variables in the evolution of postoperative patients who underwent a cardiac surgery. First of all it was developed and validity a psychometric scale, resorted to Likert?s, to measure the patients? beliefs about the cardiac surgery. The scale was called CVSCC (Beliefs ,Values and Feelings related to Cardiac Surgery). Internal consistency reliability was satisfactory and factor analysis provided support to construct validity of the scale (4 factors were positive or favorable to cardiac surgery and 2 factors were negative or unfavorable to cardiac surgery). Further ahead, the patients were classified in six categories in the postoperative evolution, taking into consideration the length of stay and the amount of complications they had. It was made use of the univariate analysis to verify the influence of each independent variable in the postoperative patients? evolution. It is worth mentioning that the age, the ejection fraction, the congestive heart failure, intraoperative arrhythmia, intraoperative blood transfusion, body mass index and the beliefs related to cardiac surgery were independent variables that had influence in the patients? postoperative evolution. This leads to the conclusion that psychosocial, sociodemographic and clinical variables have influence in the number of complications, the length of stay and the death of patients in cardiac surgery postoperative cases.
