Paul Dendale, Jessa Hospital
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01252030
First received: December 1, 2010

  Purpose

In this study, 80 coronary artery disease patients with successful coronary revascularisation (by CABG or PCI) will be included. Patients are excluded in case of: congestive heart failure, ICD or pacemaker, any disability limiting exercise participation.

These patients are attending phase 2-3 cardiac rehabilitation, and have completed 6 weeks of rehabilitation. Next, subjects are randomly assigned to a control group (continue rehabilitation for another 18 weeks) or an intervention group (continue rehabilitation for another 18 weeks, but being confronted regularly with their physical activity (by wearing physical activity monitors)).

Outcome parameters: physical activity, exercise capacity, blood glucose, insulin level and lipid profile, body weight and waist circumference, cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

Hypothesis: telemonitoring of physical activity will not increase physical activity, nor improve cardiovascular disease risk factors, in CAD patients attending phase 2-3 cardiac rehabilitation.
