The mechanisms responsible for this activation are unknown, although there have been studies suggesting a correlation with abnormal lipoproteinemia, acute myocardial infarction, unstable angina, and exercise-induced myocardial ischemia. We studied 84 patients undergoing standardized treadmill exercise using either a Bruce [N = 63] or… CONTINUE READING
