ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on the effects of exercise duration on arterial elastic properties and antioxidant/pro-oxidant mechanisms on patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Male patients with CAD underwent exercise for 30 minutes or 60 minutes in a crossover design with their aortic and radial blood pressures and arterial elastic properties/pulse wave velocity determined 24 hours after exercise. It suggests that shorter exercise duration lowers systemic oxidative stress status and improves vascular mechanics in sedentary patients with CAD.
