Psychiatric Aspects of Cardiothoracic Surgery

  • Walter Piddoubny
  • Mario Andres Caro


Heart disease is the leading cause of mortality in the USA and accounts for 17% of healthcare expenses, with projected costs of cardiovascular disease expected to triple in the next two decades. Psychiatric conditions such as depression, anxiety, and delirium, among others, are common in patients with cardiovascular disease, and their presence has been linked to worse medical outcomes and higher healthcare costs. In this book chapter, we will discuss the effects of different psychiatric conditions in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting, cardiac valvular surgery, left ventricular assist device implantation, and in patients with automatic implantable cardiac defibrillators.
