Abstract: Because of the complexity of the procedures, high level of clarification for the patients as well as their attendants while taking consent is a must as cardiac surgery is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Pictorial consent with pre-operative education is a far better option in this regard. We randomly took a total of 150 patients within the age group of 18 to 70 years, and they were explained with standard consent followed by pictorial consent and vice versa by the same informant. And they were given a preset questionnaire format after both consents. Later, based on their answers, comparison in relation to the level of clarity was done. Questionnaire was formatted after rigorous modification from the reviews of literature.
