Introduction: Regular exercise training improves prognosis in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). This study investigates whether the beneficial effects of exercise can be partly explained by favourable changes in haemostasis and inflammation.
Methods: 150 CAD patients are randomised to a supervised long-term exercise program (3 months) or usual care. Blood samples are obtained at baseline, 1.5 months, and 3 months after randomisation.
Results: We will evaluate platelet turnover and aggregation, coagulation, fibrinolysis, and inflammatory markers before and after short- and long-term exercise, and the two randomised groups will be compared.
Perspectives: The present study will increase our knowledge of the beneficial mechanisms underlying the effect of exercise in CAD patients, potentially paving the way for improved exercise recommendations.

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
