Symptoms of anxiety and depression and risk of acute myocardial infarction: the HUNT 2 study.

Gustad LT, Laugsand LE, Janszky I, Dalen H, Bjerkeset O - Eur. Heart J. (2013)

Bottom Line: A total of 2111 incident AMIs occurred, either identified at hospitals or by the National Cause of Death Registry.After exclusion of the first 5 years of follow-up, the association of depression symptoms with AMI risk was attenuated.We had some indications that these associations might partly reflect reverse causation or confounding from common chronic diseases.
