The objective of this book was to assess and compare elderlyMedicare beneficiaries occurrence of depression and associatedtreatment following a thrombotic cardiovascular event (TCE) for 1)annual prevalence rates, 2) healthcare services utilizationoutcomes in the first twelve months following a TCE, and 3) theoccurrence of recurrent TCEs or death in the first twelve monthsfollowing a TCE. The exploration used elders enrolled in the 1997to 2002 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey with a TCE. Depressionwas assessed by a claim within six months after the TCE.Univariate, bivariate, and multivariate statistics were used toassess outcomes. Findings revealed that prevalence rates ofpost-TCE depression were much lower than rates reported in previousstudies. Also, depression is associated with more acute healthcareservices and sooner during the first twelve months following a TCE;however not associated with time to recurrent event or death.Antidepressant use has no effect on outcomes.
