Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Angiographically documented CAD, with at least one coronary artery stenosis of more than 50% in a native segment never subjected to intervention, which is recommended for treatment with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA).
  • Stable coronary artery disease
  • Eligible patients could be asymptomatic or have class I to III angina (Canadian Cardiovascular Society [CCS]) with documented myocardial ischemia
  • Angina pectoris threshold > 50 Watt (cycle ergometry)
  • Permanent residence should be within 25 km of training facility.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • < 18 or > 70 years of age
  • Patient currently participating in an exercise training program
  • Unstable angina pectoris or myocardial infarction during the last 2 weeks
  • Symptoms of CCS class IV
  • Exercise limitations due to clinical conditions not related to CAD
  • Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of < 40%
  • Ventricular arrhythmia (Lown Ivb)
  • Hemodynamically significant valvular heart disease
  • Previous cardiac surgery
  • PTCA performed during the last 12 months
  • Any major non-cardiac condition that would adversely affect survival during the duration of the study
  • Reduced compliance
