Abstract

The lack of a partner (widowed or single patients) has been identified as a risk factor for experiencing higher pre-surgical anxiety. Not having experienced any prior surgical procedure has been identified as a protective factor with these patients reporting lower pre-surgical anxiety than those with prior surgical procedures.
