Abstract: Moderate exercise reduces mortality for patients with known coronary heart disease but does not significantly decrease the risk of recurrent nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI) (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, based on systematic review of randomized controlled trials). Exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation also reduces all-cause mortality (SOR: A, based on systematic review). For patients with stable angina, a daily exercise program is more effective than percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) with stenting in preventing major cardiovascular events (number needed to treat [NNT]=5.5; SOR: A, based on a single randomized controlled trial).
