Abstract: 

BACKGROUND: OBESITY AND SEDENTARY LIFESTYLE ARE KNOWN AS IMPORTANT RISK FACTORS OF CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE. THE PREVALENCE OF OBESITY HAS INCREASED AMONG BOTH MEN AND WOMEN IN THE WORLD. THEREFORE, THE PRESENT STUDY TRIED TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF A CARDIAC REHABILITATION PROGRAM ON FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY AND BODY MASS INDEX (BMI) IN OBESE AND NON-OBESE WOMEN WITH CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE. METHODS: IN AN OBSERVATIONAL STUDY DURING 2000-11, WE EVALUATED A TOTAL OF 205 WOMEN WITH CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE WHO REFERRED TO THE CARDIAC REHABILITATION UNIT OF ISFAHAN CARDIOVASCULAR RESEARCH INSTITUTE, ISFAHAN, IRAN. BMI AND FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY OF EACH PATIENT WERE ASSESSED BEFORE AND AFTER THE PROGRAM. THE PATIENTS WERE CATEGORIZED AS OBESE OR NON-OBESE BASED ON THEIR BMI. ALL PARTICIPANTS COMPLETED THE FULL COURSE OF THE PROGRAM. DATA WAS ANALYZED BY INDEPENDENT T-TEST AND PAIRED T-TEST IN SPSS15. RESULTS: OUR FINDING SHOWED THAT AN 8-WEEK CARDIAC REHABILITATION PROGRAM HAD SIGNIFICANT EFFECTS ON FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY IN OBESE AND NON-OBESE FEMALE PATIENTS (P<0.01 FOR BOTH). THE PROGRAM ALSO RESULTED IN BMI IMPROVEMENTS IN BOTH GROUPS (P<0.01 FOR BOTH). COMPARING THE CHANGES IN THE TWO GROUPS DID NOT REVEAL ANY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY. HOWEVER, THE TWO GROUPS WERE SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT IN TERMS OF BMI CHANGES. CONCLUSION: CARDIAC REHABILITATION PROGRAMS ARE A MAJOR STEP IN RESTORATION OF FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY AND IMPROVEMENT OF BMI IN OBESE AND NON-OBESE WOMEN WITH CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE.
