Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study examined whether involvement in a pre-surgical cardiac rehabilitation programme conferred a long-term survival benefit. Patients randomly allocated to a pre-surgical cardiac rehabilitation programme intervention or a control group were tracked through national databases at a point approximately 12 years later, and all causes of mortality were identified from death records. Kaplan–Meier survival analyses based on involvement in a cardiac rehabilitation programme and known pre-surgical risk factors were carried out.
