AbstractObjective: To examine the effect of exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation program for secondary prevention of coronary heart disease on cardiac-related mortality, recurrent cardiovascular event and quality of life. Methods: All studies published between 1990 and 2013 in PubMed, and from 1980 to 2013 in EMBASE, which evaluated the effectiveness of exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation program for coronary heart disease. Using the specific keywords “Cardiac rehabilitation”, “Coronary heart disease” OR “Ischemic heart disease” [MeSH], “Exercise” OR “Physical activities” AND “Quality of life” OR “Mortality” AND Cardiovascular events” were searched. A total of 7randomized controlled trials out of 5,051articles from PubMed and 117 articles from EMBASE were included in this systematic review. The primary outcome measures used in the included seven studies were HRQOL, restenosis, cardiac event, cardiac related mortality. Similar demographic and clinical characteristics of the subjects between the intervention and the control groups were recorded. The studies were from five countries. The average age of the subjects in the seven studies was 61years, the average half of them have history of myocardial infarction. Though there were discrepancies among the results generated in the included studies, the potential benefits of exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation could be seen. Results: Compared with the non-exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation, patients allocated to the exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation program had greater improvement in HRQOL and reduction of cardiac events. The result of reducing restenosis was inconsistent. The cardiac related mortality is not significant difference between exercise-based and non-exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation.
