ABSTRACT
The article addresses the question whether exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation is effective in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). The article adds that in patients with coronary heart disease, exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation reduces all-cause and cardiac mortality and improves several cardiac risk factors. All-cause mortality, cardiac mortality, nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI), revascularization, change from baseline in modifiable cardiac risk factors (lipid levels, triglyceride levels, blood pressure, and smoking), and health-related quality of life.
