Early cardiac rehabilitation exercise training for patients after cardiac surgery: a randomised controlled trial
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) and heart Valve Replacement (VR) operations are common treatments for heart disease and involve cutting through the central chest bone to expose the heart. Pain and loss of strength following this surgery can persist for up to 12 months leaving many patients unable to perform every day activities or return to work. Cardiac rehabilitation exercise (CR) improves recovery and reduces complication
The characterisation of vascular biomarkers and body composition before and after cardiac resynchronisation therapy in patients with chronic heart failure and their role in predicting response.
Heart failure is a common and disabling condition which has a higher death rate than most cancers. The problem continues to expand, despite really effective medical treatments. When patients develop heart failure their heart shape and function alters for the worse.
