Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Abstract Objective: To quantify the adverse influence of depression and anxiety, assessed at the time of myocardial infarction on the quality of life 5-year after the infarction. Methods: In 196 patients admitted following non-fatal myocardial infarction, Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) were completed in the hospital and SF-12 quality of life questionnaire at 5 years follow-up. Results: Regression analysis showed a strong association between baseline depression and QoL on both physical and mental domains; the higher the depression scores the poorer the QoL. However anxiety present at the time of myocardial infarction did not predict later QoL. Conclusions: Depression but not anxiety following MI predicts longer-term quality of life in myocardial infarction survivors.
