Having the Right Hospital Roommate Can Speed Recovery from Heart Bypass Surgery, Study Finds:"WASHINGTON -- For some people facing coronary bypass surgery, the prospect of having to share a hospital room might fill them with as much fear and loathing as the surgery itself. But a new study in the November edition of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, published by the American Psychological Association (APA), found that bypass surgery patients who shared a room with another cardiac patient -- especially one who had already had the same surgery --were less anxious, more ambulatory after surgery and were released from the hospital sooner than those who had had either a roommate with a different medical condition or no roommate at all."

Aggressive Cholesterol Lowering Reduces Atherosclerosis Progression in Bypass Grafts: Aggressive lowering of LDL-cholesterol (to under 100 mg/dL) in patients who have had coronary artery bypass surgery results in less progression of atherosclerosis in their bypass grafts than does more moderate lowering, according to the results of a large clinical trial funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).
