Patients fresh out of cardiac valve surgery are no exception to the general underutilization of cardiac rehabilitation in the U.S., according to an observational cohort study.
Enrolling in a comprehensive program of supervised exercise, cardiac risk factor modification, and psychosocial support was associated with reduced risks of re-hospitalization (adjusted HR 0.66, 95% CI 0.63-0.69) and mortality (adjusted HR 0.39, 95% CI 0.35-0.44) within 1 year of discharge after valve surgery.
