Abstract

Introduction: Stable angina pectoris is of great interest to health care workers because of the high levels of anxiety observed in patients following a coronary event. This study aims to investigate factors associated with anxiety scores in patients with stable angina pectoris. 

Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted from November to December 2020. Subjects were patients diagnosed with stable angina pectoris in the Cardiology outpatient clinic of Universitas Sumatera Utara Hospital. Signed the informed consent were subjected to history taking, and structured interviews then were asked to fill out the HADS questionnaire. 

Results: A total of 200 study subjects were obtained. The majority of the subjects, 110 (55%) subjects, were women. Of all subjects, 105 (52.5%) subjects were married. The majority of study subjects were employed (61.5%), had >9 years education (88%), non-smokers (70.5%), had comorbidities (73.5%) and had a family history of the disease (64%). The median age was 53 years (min 50, max 55 years). The median value of the length of illness was seven years (min 1 year, max 12 years). The median value of body mass index was 24.16 (min 20.11, max 30.59).  

Conclusion: Age, marital relationship, occupation, smoking status, comorbidities, family history of the disease, and body mass index were found to be associated with anxiety scores in patients with stable angina pectoris.
