The aim of our study was to determine whether exercise training can augment left ventricular diastolic filling at rest and during exercise in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy and whether any correlation exists between changes in diastolic filling and changes in exercise tolerance. Forty-three consecutive patients (mean age, 54 +/- 8 years) with ischemic cardiomyopathy and severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction (election fraction <30%) were studied. Group T (29 patients) was exercised… CONTINUE READING
