Maximizing Patient Benefit From Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy With the Addition of Structured Exercise Training - Maximizing Patient Benefit From Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy With the Addition of Structured Exercise Training

Description:

Exercise training has been shown to be beneficial in patients with chronic systolic heart failure. Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has also been shown to benefit patients with New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III or IV heart failure. This trial sought to study whether the addition of exercise training to CRT would lead to further improvements in peak VO2 in these patients.
