The discussion of physical exercise as a secondary preventive measure may seem rather superfluous since such discussions have been held many times before with rather disappointing results. Newer studies, however, have renewed interest and have increased the challenge in dealing with this subject. The establishment of comprehensive coronary care (CCC), including multiple measures with physical, psychological and pharmacological procedures, together with a new concept of pharmacological and surgical revascularization, have caused a remarkable improvement in the management of coronary heart disease.
