BACKGROUND Coronary artery surgery improves symptoms and prognosis in patients with angina. Aerobic exercise rehabilitation improves exercise capacity and prognosis in cardiac patients. Strength exercise training has not been extensively studied. DESIGN We studied the effects of 6 months aerobic and strength exercise training after coronary artery surgery in 81 men, mean age 57 years. RESULTS Treadmill time(s) increased by 130.3 (95% confidence interval 46.4 to 214.2) in the aerobic group… CONTINUE READING
