BACKGROUND Ischemia induced by psychological stress and depression is a common phenomenon in stable coronary artery disease (CAD). We evaluated the quality of life (QoL) of diabetic patients screened for CAD and assessed the prognostic value of mental and physical QoL scores to predict the development of new cardiac ischemia. METHODS Prospective multicentre outcome study. The study comprised 400 asymptomatic diabetic patients without history or symptoms of CAD. They underwent myocardial… CONTINUE READING
