(1/4) Association of psychiatric history and type D personality with symptoms of anxiety, depression, and health status prior to ICD implantation.


(2/4) Prevalence of "distressed" personality in patients with coronary artery disease and its correlation with morbidity after coronary surgery.

INTRODUCTION: The "distressed" (Type-D) personality is an emerging risk factor in cardiovascular diseases and is associated with an increased risk of impaired quality of life, morbidity and mortality. The purpose of this study was to explore the prevalence of Type-D personality among patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and its association with the development of complications following coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. METHODS: A Greek version of the Type-D Personality Scale-14 (DS14), along with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) as well as the Ways of Coping Questionnaire (WCQ), were used. A cohort of 323 patients with CAD was examined. RESULTS: The prevalence of Type-D personality among Greek patients with CAD was found to be 18.24%. Type-D patients showed a higher rate of anxiety and depression compared to non Type-D patients. Type-D was also associated with passive coping and negatively correlated with active coping. Regarding postoperative morbidity, type-D patients were at an increased risk of developing postoperative atrial fibrillation, while no significant differences were found in the development of any other complication. CONCLUSIONS: The impact of Type-D personality on health outcomes should be studied further, both in clinical samples and in the general population.  (+info)

  • According to this theory, impatient, achievement-oriented people are classified as Type A, whereas easy-going, relaxed individuals are designated as Type B. The theory originally suggested that Type A individuals were more at risk for coronary heart disease, but this claim has not been supported by empirical research. (wikipedia.org)
  • High levels of cortisol are thought to be the mediating factor in the association between this personality type and the increased risk for coronary heart disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Additionally, the inhibition of emotions that characterizes type D personality types is strongly associated with higher cardiovascular reactivity, lower cardiovascular recovery, lower heart rate variability, carotid atherosclerosis, incidence of coronary heart disease, and cardiac mortality. (wikipedia.org)
  • In this theory, personalities that are more competitive, highly organized, ambitious, impatient, highly aware of time management and/or aggressive are labeled Type A, while more relaxed personalities are labeled Type B. The two cardiologists who developed this theory came to believe that Type A personalities had a greater chance of developing coronary heart disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • After an eight-and-a-half-year-long study of healthy men between the ages of 35 and 59, Friedman and Rosenman estimated that Type A behavior doubles the risk of coronary heart disease in otherwise healthy individuals. (wikipedia.org)
  • Subsequent analysis indicated that although Type A personality is associated with the incidence of coronary heart disease, it does not seem to be a risk factor for mortality. (wikipedia.org)
  • The industry's interest in TABP lasted at least four decades until the late 1990s, involving substantial funding to key researchers encouraged to prove smoking to simply correlate with a personality type prone to coronary heart disease (CHD) and cancer. (wikipedia.org)
