Abstract

No data are available about the possible role of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), cytochemokines and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) in determining a different response to short period of cardiologic rehabilitation (CR), as measured by the improvement of exercise capacity. In a population of 86 cardiac surgery patients, we evaluated the numbers of EPCs, pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines (IL-6,IL-8, IL-10, IL-Ira), hs-C-reactive protein (CRP), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and NT-proBNP before (Tl ),and after 15 days of CR (T2). EPCs were measured by flow cytometry, and the exercise capacity was measured at T1 andT2 by using the six-minute walk test (6MWT).At T2, a significant increase of 6MWT (p
