Abstract :

Most patients with myocardial infarction (MI) experience a certain degree of underdiagnosed and undertreated depression. Pathophysiologically, depression is associated with other cardiovascular risk factors, increased platelet aggregability, inflammation, and autonomic dysregulation. In respect to behavioural risk factors, depression has been linked with increased smoking and alcohol use, non-compliance to prescribed medical treatment, and physical inactivity. Evidence showed that there is a strong interconnection between depression and cardiac events. Recently, depression has been recognised a risk factor for cardiac morbidity and mortality for patients with established coronary disease. Furthermore, high levels of depressive symptoms are associated with increased risks of mortality from all causes, including MI.
