Materials and methods: This descriptive-correlational study was carried out in 2001.

These patients suffer from coronary artery disease which was approved by angiography. Coping Ways questionnaire- Lazarus and kit of CRP (produced by Pars Azmoon Co) were used. Indicators and descriptive statistics and Pearson correlation and multiple regression analysis with stepwise method with significant level 0/01 were used for statistical analysis of research data.
