The warm-up effect protects against ischemic left ventricular dysfunction in patients with angina.
OBJECTIVES: The goal of this study was to investigate whether the "warm-up" effect in angina protects against ischemic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. BACKGROUND: After exercise, patients with coronary disease demonstrate persistent myocardial dysfunction, which may represent stunning, as well as warm-up protection against further angina, which may represent ischemic preconditioning. The effect of warm-up exercise on LV function during subsequent exercise has not been investigated. METHODS...Expand abstract
