The results of many studies and recent meta-analyses strongly suggest that depression is a risk factor for total and cardiovascular mortality, both in the general population and in patients with known heart disease. By contrast, the association between depression and sudden death or cardiac arrest has received little attention. This issue has been investigated in three recent studies; two were carried out in the general population and showed depression to be a independent risk factor for sudden… Expand
Early-onset depression, anxiety, and risk of subsequent coronary heart disease: 37-year follow-up of 49,321 young Swedish men.
TLDR
In men, aged 18 to 20 years, anxiety as diagnosed by experts according to ICD-8 criteria independently predicted subsequent CHD events, and there was no support for such an effect concerning early-onset depression in men. Expand
Clinical risk factors of acute myocardial infarction in young people: Anxiety in the lead?
Background: Multiple risk factors are associated with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) but local data in young patients are limited. The present study explored risk factors of AMI in young patients.Expand
Symptoms of depression and anxiety after cardiac arrest.
TLDR
A significantly higher average level of depression and a higher incidence of anxiety was demonstrated in patients after a sudden cardiac arrest and after myocardial infarction (reference group) compared with the control group. Expand

TLDR
Improved recognition, treatment, and Prevention of depression are critical public health priorities and the administration of combination of treatment interventions and dual reuptake inhibitors are likely to ensure early response and prevention of relapse. Expand

Depressive symptoms and the risk of sudden cardiac death among the elderly.
TLDR
Depressive symptoms increase the risk of SCD, but not that of non-SCD and non-fatal myocardial infarction among the elderly subjects. Expand

TLDR
There was no significant association between depressive symptoms and fatal or non-fatal cardiovascular events after adjustment for cardiovascular symptoms associated with poorer prognosis. Expand
Depressive Symptoms, Coronary Heart Disease, and Overall Mortality in the Framingham Heart Study
TLDR
The finding that depressive symptoms did not predict hard coronary disease events and all-cause mortality was directly associated with depressive symptoms underscores the importance of further research into the pathogenesis and prevention of excess mortality experienced with depressive Symptoms.

Clinical depression and risk of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
TLDR
Clinically depressed patients are associated with a higher risk of CA independently of established coronary heart disease risk factors, and the association was observed in both sexes, in various age groups, and in subjects with prior physician- diagnosed heart disease. Expand
Depression in older age is a risk factor for first ischemic cardiac events.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the cardiac morbidity and mortality after depression in late life is mediated by subclinical atherosclerosis and is thus confined to ischemic heart diseases. Expand

TLDR
Among elderly Americans, depressive symptoms constitute an independent risk factor for the development of CHD and total mortality. Expand
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. Expand
Depression and risk of sudden cardiac death after acute myocardial infarction: testing for the confounding effects of fatigue.
TLDR
The trend for the cognitive-affective symptoms of depression to be associated with SCD risk, even after controlling for dyspnea/fatigue, suggests that the association between depression and mortality after AMI cannot be entirely explained as a confound of cardiac-related fatigue. Expand

Among elderly Americans, depressive symptoms constitute an independent risk factor for the development of CHD and total mortality among an apparently healthy elderly cohort. Expand
Depression and long-term mortality risk in patients with coronary artery disease.
TLDR
The heightened long-term risk of depressed patients suggests that depression may be persistent or frequently recurrent in CAD patients and is associated with CAD progression, triggering of acute events, or both. Expand
