Depression and chronic heart failure: The modern aspects of management

Author(s):
Anastasiia Medvid, Mykhaylo Vynnyk, Sergiy Fedorov
Abstract:
Chronic heart failure (HF) is the end stage of most diseases of cardiovascular system and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The outcome of HF patients depends not only on the physical characteristics of the disease, but also on psychological stress in the form of anxiety and depression. More randomized clinical trials are needed that are adequately powered to evaluate whether the use of SSRIs and/or other antidepressants may reduce mortality and other cardiac outcomes without raising safety concerns among depressed cardiac patients.
