Abstract

The evaluation of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following myocardial infarction in four patients is described. The authors outline principles of the therapeutic interventions performed to alter the disorder and alleviate patients' incapacitation. Also discussed are the reasons that may be at the root of the omission of the diagnosis of PTSD for this patient population.
