PMID:  6607895     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We performed pre- and post-operative exercise testing on 12 patients with coronary artery bypass surgery and ventricular aneurysmectomy and 2 patients with ventricular aneurysmectomy alone. Most patients showed better exercise performance, higher double product, better work capacity and were able to exercise longer. Two patients who had ventricular aneurysmectomy alone showed similar changes. Most patients showed improved New York Heart Association functional classification and exercise performance after surgery.
