BACKGROUND Narrative review strategies and meta-analyses have shown that drug treatment and exercise rehabilitation regimens can reduce psychological distress and postmyocardial infarction mortality and recurrence. OBJECTIVE To question whether the addition of psychosocial interventions improves the outcome of a standard rehabilitation regimen for patients with coronary artery disease. METHODS We performed a statistical meta-analysis of 23 randomized controlled trials that evaluated the… Expand
Effect of intervention for psychological distress on rehospitalization rates in cardiac rehabilitation patients.
TLDR
Although there was a nonsignificant reduction of the SCL-90-R's GSI T-score, the depression score was significantly reduced in the special intervention group, and the percentage of patients rehospitalized for cardiac symptoms within 12 months of psychological evaluation was 43% for special intervention and 40% for usual care. Expand
Psychosocial interventions in coronary artery disease.
TLDR
Evidence that coronary artery disease (CAD) is a psychosomatic condition is shown and the addition of psychosocial treatments to standard cardiac rehabilitation regimens reduces mortality, morbidity, and some biological risk factors is found. Expand
Relationships between Psychoeducational Rehabilitation and Health Outcomes—A Systematic Review Focused on Acute Coronary Syndrome
TLDR
Patients with ACS can receive significant benefits through individualized psychoeducation sessions through type and dose of psychological intervention, and major adverse cardiovascular events, quality of life, hospitalizations, lipidogram, creatinine, NYHA class, smoking, physical behavior, and emotional state were significantly improved. Expand
Psychosocial interventions in cardiovascular disease – what are they?
TLDR
To improve transparency of psychosocial interventions and enable their reproducibility, comparison and evaluation, a proposed taxonomy that cuts across four dimensions is helpful. Expand
The effect of a psychosocial intervention and quality of life after acute myocardial infarction: the Enhancing Recovery in Coronary Heart Disease (ENRICHD) clinical trial.
TLDR
Psychosocial interventions of limited duration confer modest QOL benefits in post-MI patients who are depressed or have low perceived social support and interventions of longer duration or greater intensity may be required to produce more substantial improvements in QOL in these patients. Expand
Clinical Implications of a Reduction in Psychological Distress on Cardiac Prognosis in Patients Participating in a Psychosocial Intervention Program
TLDR
Post–myocardial infarction interventions that reduce psychological distress have the potential to improve long-term prognosis and psychological status for both men and women. Expand
A meta-analysis of psychoeducational programs for coronary heart disease patients.
TLDR
In a meta-analysis of 37 studies, the effects of psychoeducational programs for coronary heart disease patients were examined and it is suggested that cardiac rehabilitation programs that were successful on proximal targets were more effective on distal targets than programs without success on proximate targets. Expand
Review: psychological interventions do not reduce all cause or cardiac mortality in coronary heart disease
TLDR
In patients with CHD, combined psychological interventions have some beneficial effects on psychological wellbeing, but not on all cause or CHD related mortality and stress management alone does not appear to significantly affect these outcomes. Expand
Psychological treatments in cardiac rehabilitation: review of rationales and outcomes.

TLDR
The aggregated findings support the use of psychosocial interventions and they also help to explain critical differences in outcome in that studies which fail to reduce distress also fail to lead to reduced mortality or reduced event recurrence. Expand
Reducing Emotional Distress Improves Prognosis in Coronary Heart Disease: 9-Year Mortality in a Clinical Trial of Rehabilitation
TLDR
Warding off deterioration in negative affect is a mechanism that may explain the beneficial effect of comprehensive rehabilitation on prognosis in patients with CHD and is associated with a high long-term mortality risk. Expand

Stress management for patients with heart disease: a pilot study.
TLDR
Computed effect sizes indicated that blood pressure reactivity to a psychologic challenge was reduced after treatment in the ER + SM group but not in ER group, and changes in serum lipid levels may be sensitive and cost-effective measures to include in future studies of cardiac rehabilitation. Expand
A randomized control trial of cardiac rehabilitation.
TLDR
Results indicate that implementing measures addressing the patient's general psycho-social adjustment to MI may improve existing programs and suggest that rehabilitation programs intervening on multiple levels (psychological, social, occupational, and physical) may best meet the needs of chronically ill cardiac patients. Expand
Depressive Symptoms Predict Functional Improvement Following Cardiac Rehabilitation and Exercise Program
TLDR
Baseline characteristics including age, sex, body mass index, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density cholesterol, functional class, and exercise capacity were not significantly different in the two groups, and improvement in LDL-C and HDL-C were quite similar in both groups. Expand
The ischemic heart disease life stress monitoring program: impact on mortality.
TLDR
It is suggested that stress‐relieving programs may have a greater impact in reducing cardiac deaths than in preventing nonlethal coronary episodes. Expand
In-hospital symptoms of psychological stress as predictors of long-term outcome after acute myocardial infarction in men.
TLDR
There was little evidence of impact among patients with low levels of stress in the hospital, and highly stressed patients who took part in the 1-year program of stress monitoring and intervention did not experience any significant long-term increase in risk. Expand
Post-infarction depression and incomplete recovery 6 months after acute myocardial infarction
TLDR
It is revealed that persistent postinfarction depression is an independent and important source of subsequent morbidity and long-acting reduced quality of life and the inverse association of depression and work resumption was lost after adjustment. Expand
Depression following myocardial infarction. Impact on 6-month survival.
TLDR
Major depression in patients hospitalized following an MI is an independent risk factor for mortality at 6 months and its impact is at least equivalent to that of left ventricular dysfunction (Killip class) and history of previous MI. Expand
Cardiac events after myocardial infarction: possible effect of relaxation therapy.
TLDR
It is suggested that a combination of a behavioural treatment such as relaxation therapy with exercise training is more favourable for the long-term outcome after myocardial infarction than is exercise training alone. Expand
Psychologic treatment for the type A behavior pattern and for coronary heart disease: a meta‐analysis of the literature.
TLDR
It is concluded that psychologic intervention to reduce TABP may improve clinical outcome of CHD and that this deserves further study and preliminary clinical application. Expand
Major depressive disorder predicts cardiac events in patients with coronary artery disease.
TLDR
It is concluded that major depressive disorder is an important independent risk factor for the occurrence of major cardiac events in patients with CAD. Expand
