  1. Depression, diagnostic sub-type and death : a 25 year follow-up study.

    Article - En anglais

    We assessed mortality rates over 25 years in 212 patients admitted for depression or depressive symptoms.

    More patients had died than expected (80 including 13 suicides ; SMR=1.40, P<0.01).

    Females, but not males, experienced significantly higher mortality than the general population.

    When suicides were excluded, neither the group as a whole, nor females solely, demonstrated excess mortality.

    Rigorously diagnosed depressive sub-type did not predict mortality.

    Mortality, particularly from suicide, was disproportionately greater in the first 2 years after index admission, suggesting that the follow-up of patients hospitalised with depression must be especially assiduous during the years immediately after admission.
