Manifestations of psychological distress (depression and anxiety) and distressed personality (type D) are observed in 30–40 % of patients before or after coronary bypass (CB). These conditions may negatively affect both direct and remote results of the surgery and impair quality of life. For this practical reason, clinicians need to know psycho-emotional problems of CB patients, their significance, methods of their detection, and interventions to be used for correction of these disorders. Such interventions should be multimodal. They should include not only drug and cognitive-behavioral treatment but also educational programs and exercise. Such interventions should be administered both pre- and postsurgery. The presented review was focused on these issues.
