Abstract

In this study, the authors compared "... exercise capacity and cardiovascular response to exercise in elderly individuals with coronary artery disease (CAD) who attend ongoing community-based maintenance cardiac rehabilitation (CR) versus age- and gender-matched healthy 'very active' (HVA; ≥ 2000 kcal/week) and healthy 'less active' (HLA; <2000 kcal/week) individuals".
