Objective of the study. To analyze the literature data on the significance of anxiety-depressive disorders in assessing the severity of CHD patients with AF. Materials and methods. The authors analyzed 4 domestic and 11 foreign publications describing the role of anxiety-depressive disorders in the assessment of severity of patients with AF. Results. Prevalence and persistence of depression and anxiety in patients with coronary heart disease and atrial fibrillation as well as their influence on quality of life have been analyzed in the literature. Approximately one third of these patients have elevated levels of depression and anxiety. Conclusion. Thus, according to the literature, AF is the most common arrhythmia in clinical practice. However, few studies concerning depression and anxiety in patients with AF have been conducted. It is possible to conclude, that question of associations of psychological stress, anxiety and depression with risk of occurrence of AF and its complications needs further studying
