Core Tip The preliminary results of the first large-scale study on a sample of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) patients with posttraumatic stress disorder induced by acute coronary syndrome indicate a significant number of patients who have a persistently increased risk of adverse events, and yet are still insufficiently recognized and treated. The study demonstrates that one possible mechanism of poorer outcomes is the avoidance of physical activity. A multidisciplinary approach involving cardiologists, psychiatrists, and psychologists is required for the identification and early intervention in these patients, and CR and comprehensive social support play a critical role.
