The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a psycho- social intervention approach aimed at resolving psychological conflicts could reduce the severity of risk factors for post-acute myocardial infarction patients.
Twenty-three patients with a recent myocardial infarction participated in a group psychosocial intervention program which lasted 1 year.
Twenty other patients with recent myocardial infarction served as controls.
Patients form both groups had regular clinical and laboratory follow-up as well as medication.
