Abstract

This review aims to summarize the current evidence for the association of depression and Type D personality with clinical and patient-centred outcomes and self-care in chronic heart failure (CHF) patients. Emotional distress is highly prevalent in CHF patients. In contrast to results in coronary artery disease, there is inconsistent evidence for the adverse effects of depression and Type D on prognosis. Type D and depression are important predictors of impaired health status in CHF, and patients characterised by depression or Type D report reduced self-care. Pathophysiological processes associated with depression and Type D are discussed, as they may contribute to disease progression. Future research may benefit from taking inconsistencies in and problems with assessment of depression and Type D into account, as well as focusing on the network of psychophysiological and behavioural factors to elucidate their precise role in CHF patients with depression or Type D. Furthermore, it is advised that clinicians address the observed differences in self-care behaviours to improve health in CHF patients with depression or Type D personality.
