One year cumulative incidence of depression following myocardial infarction and impact on cardiac outcome.
Contribution of diet and major depression to incidence of acute myocardial infarction (AMI)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that severe depression symptoms are independent risk factors for AMI, and severe depression was associated with an unhealthy diet and AMI risk factors.
Anxiety and depression following myocardial infarction: gender differences in a 5-year prospective study.
FREQUENCY OF DEPRESSION AMONG PATIENTS WITH ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME, EASTERN REGION, SAUDI ARABIA
TLDR
Depression is unquestionably associated with CAD, and the highest frequency was recorded among patients from the Indian subcontinent, which was the strongest independent risk factors for depression.
Correlates of memory loss and depression among myocardial infarction patients in Al-Qassim, Saudi Arabia
Post‐MI Psychiatric Syndromes: Six Unanswered Questions
TLDR
To make further progress, large, multicenter trials that use optimized screening tools, obtain data at several time points, consider multiple psychosocial variables, and correct carefully for medical/cardiac severity are required.
Depressive symptoms and cardiovascular diseases in the adult Polish population. Results of the NATPOL2011 study.
TLDR
Depressive symptoms were more prevalent in women compared to men, and they were significantly and inde-pendently associated with age and primary education level in both sexes, and with a history of stroke in women.
Depression and outcomes in hospitalized Japanese patients with cardiovascular disease. - Prospective single-center observational study-.
TLDR
Depressed patients with cardiovascular disease had a significantly higher rate of mortality than non-depressed patients and depression was an independent predictor of the primary outcome.

Psychoimmunology as a common pathogenetic pathway in myocardial infarction, depression and cardiac death
TLDR
Evidence indicating a pivotal role of inflammatory mediators as a common factor in the pathophysiology of MI, depression and cardiac mortality is reviewed and the effects of antidepressant treatment on these inflammatory mediator in MI-related depression are reviewed.
Major Depression Before and After Myocardial Infarction: Its Nature and Consequences
TLDR
Post-MI depression is common and largely unrelated to medical and psychosocial factors, and patients who became depressed after discharge differed from those who remained depression-free in terms of age, history of depression, BDI scores, and the number of depression symptoms on the DIS in the hospital.
Prevention of Depression and Anxiety in Patients with Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
The data suggest that women are much more likely to be depressed than men, and to remain so in the course of recovery, and the risk factors for depression identified in other clinical populations, such as previous history of depression, are undoubtedly relevant to CVD patients.
Gender, depression, and one-year prognosis after myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Depression in hospital after MI is a significant predictor of 1-year cardiac mortality for women as well as for men, and its impact is largely independent of other post-MI risks.
Affective disorders and survival after acute myocardial infarction. Results from the post-infarction late potential study.
TLDR
The findings indicate that affective disorders play an important role in the post-acute phase after AMI although the extent of myocardial infarction and behaviour responses are not significantly related to one another.
Depression and 18-month prognosis after myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Depression while in the hospital after an MI is a significant predictor of 18-month post- MI cardiac mortality and significantly improves a risk-stratification model based on traditional post-MI risks, including previous MI, Killip class, and PVCs.
The relationship of depression to cardiovascular disease: epidemiology, biology, and treatment.
TLDR
Treatment of depression in patients with CVD improves their dysphoria and other signs and symptoms of depression, improves quality of life, and perhaps even increases longevity.
Depression following Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
Major depression is common in the acute post-myocardial infarction period and confer significant psychiatric morbidity and, if sustained, require psychiatric intervention.
