Abstract
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of mortality in developed countries, followed by depression. Recent literature supports a bidirectional relationship between depression and CAD, which adversely affects the quality of life. Although there is a high prevalence of co-occurring CAD and depression, there is limited research on relationship of depression and aging in individuals with CAD. This study employs analytical cross sectional design to identify the relationships between depressive symptoms and aging and identifies factors predicting higher scores on depression screening scales in individuals with CAD. The analyses revealed that older adults reported significantly higher scores on Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) in comparison to younger adults. Moreover female sex, age ≥75 years, smoking, physical limitation, anxiety and social support were independent predictors of depression in individuals with CAD. There is a need to further study the dynamics of depression in older adults with CAD and the effect of depression treatment on morbidity, mortality and quality of life.
