abstract

  • Among women with suspected CAD, anger-out scores were associated with the presence of angiographic CAD. Anger/hostility traits were associated with increased symptoms, particularly with nonanginal chest pain in women without angiographic CAD. Relationships among psychosocial factors, cardiac symptoms, and angiographic CAD are potentially important in the management of women with suspected CAD.
