Abstract

To characterize the differences in adaptations to endurance exercise training and prognosis between patients with depressed and normal left ventricular (LV) function, 20 patients with coronary artery disease were studied and followed for 7 years. Patients with normal LV function had enhancement of LV systolic function, but the group with LV dysfunction did not exhibit cardiac adaptations and had more cardiac events than those with normal LV function.
