Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Although the relationship of depression to coronary artery disease is not fully understood, recent research suggests an association. The author discusses both positive and negative research findings, as well as the connection between depression and the risk of developing and increasing the mortality of coronary disease. He concludes that physicians should be attentive to depressive symptoms in all patients, particularly those with acute coronary syndromes.
