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.
