Background and purpose: In human studies the association between different biological and psychosocial aspects is clearly understood. It is believed that physical problems lead to some psychosocial problems, thereby creating more health problems. Cardiovascular diseases are good examples of these associations. Emotional and psychosocial problems could increase the incidence rate and condition of physical disorders. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of resilience in patients with cardiovascular diseases. Material and Methods:. This casual comparative study was performed in 232 people including 87 healthy individuals, 77 patients hospitalized for myocardial infarction (MI) and 68 patients with other cardiovascular diseases. The patients were those admitted in two hospitals affiliated to Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences. The subjects were selected based on their availability. The Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale was used to collect the data. Results: This study showed higher resilience scores in healthy individuals compared to that of the patients with cardiovascular diseases. Regression analysis indicated significant associations between coping styles and resilience with cardiovascular diseases. We found resilience as the main predictor of cardiovascular diseases (β = -0/6). Conclusion: The results showed a significant relationship between resilience and cardiovascular diseases. There were also significant differences between healthy subjects and patients in their resilience score
