HealthDay (4/26, Preidt) reports, “More than one in 10 patients who receive” an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) “also developed anxiety or depression,” research suggests. Included in the study were “more than 1,000 patients who completed questionnaires on their mental health and physical quality of life before and over 24 months after ICD implantation.” The study revealed that “over the follow-up period, nearly 15% of patients reported new-onset anxiety and about 11% reported new-onset depression.” The findings were presented at the European Society of Cardiology’s virtual annual meeting.
