Data were collected using "demographic information survey" and "Beck Depression Inventory" questionnaires before and after rehabilitation (2 and 10 weeks after angioplasty in control group and 2 weeks after angioplasty and after 8 weeks of rehabilitation course in case group). Data analysis was done in SPSS version 18 and by student's t test, pair t test, chi-square at significant level of p<0.05.

Results: Out of 100 patients, respective mean ages were 57.46±8.06 and 60.64±10.62 year for case and control groups and 60% was male. There was a significant relationship between depression scores in before and after cardiac rehabilitation in the cases (p<0.001). However, correlation between depression scores after 2 and 10 weeks of angioplasty was not significant (p=0.054). There was also prominent differences in depression scores between case and control groups (p<0.001).
