Approximately, 70 % of acute myocardial infarctions are known to develop from mild atherosclerotic lesions. Therefore, it is important to evaluate mild coronary plaques to prevent acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation (CR) on mild coronary atherosclerosis in non-culprit lesions in patients with ACS. Forty-one men with ACS who underwent emergency percutaneous coronary interventions and completed a 6… CONTINUE READING
