Abstract

Background: Exercise is currently recommended for patients after myocardial infarction; however, the effects of regular exercise on the remodeling process remain to be defined. The aim of this multicenter, randomized study was to investigate whether a long-term physical training program influences left ventricular size and function in postinfarction patients with systolic dysfunction. Methods and Results: Consecutive patients with 2, P2, P2, P=NS; end-systolic volume, from 61±22 to 57±23 mL/m2, P=NS). Conversely, ejection fraction had improved in the training group (from 34±5% to 38±8%, P
