Three hundred and thirty patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) (288 men, 42 women, age of 55.5 +/- 10.0 years) participated in a 4-week ambulatory cardiac rehabilitation program (ACR) (Table 1). The cardiovascular indication for ACR was in 229 cases a myocardial infarction. In 101 patients a CAD with invasive revascularization but without a history of MI was present. In 92 patients with myocardial infarction additionally an invasive revascularization was performed. Eighty-three patients were included after a CABG-procedure (Tables 2 to 5). Six months after the ACR 290 (87.9%) patients presented for clinical reevaluation. In 235 (81.0%) of the 290 examined patients the cardiovascular diagnosis was unaltered. In the first 6 months after ACR in 76 (26.2%) patients a coronarography was performed, in 44 patients a restenosis was diagnosed. In 36 patients an additional invasive procedure (in 28 patients a PTCA, in 5 patients with additional stent-implantation, in 1 case with rotablation, in 8 patients CABG) was performed. In 1 patients a pace-maker was implanted. Since the ACR 1 patient experienced a myocardial infarction and 2 a recurrent myocardial infarction. In 1 patient myocardial fibrillation occurred. Totally, 70 patients (24.1%) required stationary-hospital treatment during the first 6 months after ACR (Table 6). In 11 cases an acute admission to hospital treatment because of cardiovascular reasons was documented. The majority of the hospital admission was elective, because of diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. In 6 patients a CABG-surgery was performed. In approximately 80% of the patients the cardiovascular status was stable during the first 6 months after ACR. Though 24.1% of the patients required stationary hospital treatment, the majority of the admissions was elective of interest, there was a high rate of hospital admissions in the PTCA-group in combination with recoronarographies and revascularization because of early reocclusion.
