Abstract

In recent times, increasing attention has been paid to the recovery phase after exercise in patients with stable angina pectoris. The relation between a prolonged postexercise ST-segment depression and the degree of impairment of exercise tolerance, extent and severity of coronary artery disease, presence of collateral circulation and degree of left ventricular dysfunction has been investigated.1-5 Little is known about the reproducibility of postexercise ST-segment changes, and few studies have investigated the possible determinants of recovery duration in individual patients; in addition most studies have focused on the possible role of body position during and after exercise6,7 or of exercise type.7 This study investigates the reproducibility of postexercise ST-segment changes and identifies which parameters are capable of influencing them in individual patients.
