Objectives:  The purpose of this updated meta-analysis was to determine whether exercise training reversed left ventricular remodelling in heart failure patients. Methods:  Articles were searched in MEDLINE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, CINAHL, EMBASE and PubMed (up until October, 2011). The anti-remodelling benefit of exercise training was assessed by ejection fraction (EF), end-diastolic volume (EDV) and end-systolic volume (ESV). Standardised mean difference (SMD) together… CONTINUE READING
