To compare the exercise capacity after cardiac rehabilitation (CR) in patients with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.
27 patients who underwent PCI and 18 patients who underwent CABG surgery were included. All the subjects performed supervised exercise training for 6∼8 weeks at hospital and self-exercise at community for additional 16~18 weeks. Exercise capacity was measured by symptom limited graded exercise tests at study entry and 6 months later.
After 6 months of CR, maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) was significantly increased, resting heart rate (HR) and submaximal rate pressure product (RPP) were significantly decreased in both groups (p<0.05). There were no significant change of maximal HR in both groups (p<0.05). Maximal RPP in CABG increased significantly (p<0.05) but did not change significantly in PCI group. Resting HR was significantly higher, VO2max was significantly lower in CABG group than PCI group at study entry (p<0.05). Resting HR was not significantly different in both groups but, VO2max was still lower in CABG group than PCI group even after 6 months of CR (p<0.05).
The cardiac rehabilitation program was effective in both PCI and CABG group. Although VO2max in PCI group was higher than CABG group after 6 month CR, the range of improvement was greater in CABG group than PCI group. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2008; 32: 437-442)
