Abstract

The present overview is based on recent meta-analyses of randomised clinical studies on rehabilitation programmes for patients with ischaemic heart disease. It can be concluded that only programmes in which exercise either had been the main intervention or an essential part of a comprehensive programme significantly reduced both total and cardiac mortality by approx. 25-30%.
