    Baglini Roberto*, Baglini Leonardo and Benemeglio Stefano

    Five-hundred outpatients with established coronary artery disease underwent to the “analogic personality test” aiming to discriminate the bipolar subpopulation accordingly to the indication of Analogical Disciplines Italian School. Hundred-thirteen bipolar patients (Group 1) were identified and compared to the remaining three hundred-eighty seven patients during a two years clinical follow-up in order to detect possible differences in cardiac death, myocardial infarction, Cerebrovascular Accidents (CVA), re-PCI rate. Significant statistical differences were encountered for each one of the considered events but CVA while ANOVA revealed bipolar personality, diabetes, age, left ventricular ejection fraction <35% and heart failure as significant predictive variables for cardiovascular events. Bipolarism represents a new risk factor for new events in patients with established coronary artery disease.
