[en] Cardiac rehabilitation - Recommendations - Secondary prevention - Update
[en] Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in western countries. Despite advances in acute management of patients, secondary prevention remains essential and should include cardiac rehabilitation. Recent data have confirmed the interest of this management in the various conventional indications : coronary disease, valvular heart disease, heart failure and heart transplantation. New indications emerge with some benefit that should be evaluated : ventricular assistance, pulmonary hypertension, trans-catheter aortic valve implantation. However, the different rehabilitation programs proposed are still too uneven in content and duration and the number of patients participating in these programs remains low. Home based cardiac rehabilitation technologies have already shown some effectiveness and could improve some of the weaknesses of rehabilitation programs. Again protocols and tools need to be improved and standardized. The budgetary impact will also have to be studied further.
