Hostility, age, and mortality in a sample of cardiac patients.


Journal Article

This study examined hostility as a predictor of survival in a sample of 1,328 patients who had documented coronary artery disease. After controlling for disease severity, there was a significant interaction between age and hostility. Hostility was significantly associated with poorer survival but only in younger (<61.2 years) patients.
