    Abstract

    In a recent randomized feasibility trial, Nikrahan et al.1 found that positive psychological interventions (PPIs) led to significant improvements in psychological wellbeing in patients who had undergone a procedure to treat cardiovascular disease. We were enthused to see this line of inquiry and agree this is a crucial step in determining the generalizability of PPIs in non-Western clinical populations.
