ABSTRACT
The article presents a commentary on the study, which concluded that exercise training reduced events more than percutaneous coronary intervention in stable coronary artery disease. In this study, Coronary restenosis occurred in 15% of the patients who had angioplasty, whereas no significant change occurred in the target lesion of the exercise training group. This study should nor be considered evidence that angioplasty should be replaced by exercise. Every patient with CAD should exercise and make every effort to control their risk factors.
