Some 18 years ago, as we started on our first steps in rehabilitating the post myocardial infarction patients, we soon found out that the main problem we are facing is the patient with angina pectoris (1). In a preliminary study involving 93 patients after myocardial infarction with a mean age of 52 years without angina pectoris, we obtained a physical work capacity of about 80% of the norm as established at our laboratory (according to healthy individuals matched by age and sex).
