Valve surgery

This patient group includes all types of valve surgery. The typical patient in this group will be post-aortic or mitral valve replacement. The exercise part of cardiac rehabilitation plays a role in reversing the symptoms associated with deconditioning. A review by Stewart, et al. (2003) examining valve surgery and cardiac rehabilitation found that supervised exercise training in comprehensive CR was effective in increasing functional capacity and favourably modifying disease-related risk factors, decreasing symptoms and improving quality of life for valve patients. Although studies have been limited due to small sample size and lack of control groups, there is increasing evidence of the benefits of exercise-based CR for these patients.
