Example text

The Enhancing Recovery in Coronary Heart Disease Patients (ENRICHD) trial enrolled 2481 post-MI patients from seventy-three hospitals in the United States, and aimed to determine whether treatment of depression and low perceived social support would increase reinfarction-free survival after AMI. Three quarters of the study patients had depression. The intervention consisted of a 6-month course of weekly cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) versus usual care. Patients in the intervention group who had significant depression were considered for treatment with sertraline.

Late-life depression is associated with cognitive impairment. Although depressed elderly patients with cognitive impairment may experience improvement in certain areas with antidepressant treatment, they may not reach normal levels of performance, especially in executive and memory functions. Patients who develop depression late in life are at increased risk for the development of progressive dementia and should be closely followed . The psychosocial effects of depression in elderly patients with CAD are also significant.

New onset depressive symptoms after CABG are related to postoperative functional decline . These symptoms are also associated with postoperative angina pectoris, both in daily life and when exposed to a maximal exercise stress test, as well as with poor postoperative adjustment . There are no definitive guidelines regarding the treatment of post-CABG depression. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in the USA is currently recruiting patients for a study to test the efficacy of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and stress management (SM) therapy as treatments for depression in people who have recently undergone CABG.
