Influence of the Social Security System on Psychosomatic Problems: The Example of Myocardial Infarction
My contribution to this symposium deals with one subject in particular, that is, the problems of myocardial infarction. Certainly until recently, myocardial infarction was generally considered as a purely organic illness, and treated accordingly. Psychosomatic research has, however, shown that psychic factors play a considerable role in the genesis of the disease. The writer has been working in this area for years. He considers this illness, in both its inception and its development, as a psychosomatic disease par excellence.
