Although there are extensive clinical evaluations of cardiac rehabilitation after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), no full economic evaluation is available.
Patients with AMI and mild to moderate anxiety or depression, or both, while still in hospital were randomized to either and 8-week rehabilitation intervention (n=99) or usual care (n=102).
Comprehensive costs and health-related quality of life, measured with the time trade-off preference score, were obtained in a 12-month trial, and together with survival data derived from published meta-analyses, cost-utility and cost-effectiveness of early cardiac rehabilitation were estimated.
