Resumo

The objective of this report is to document the effects of an aerobic training program on myocardial perfusion, and endothelial function abnormalities, and on the relief of angina in a patient with microvascular myocardial ischemia. A 53-year-old female patient exhibited precordial pain on effort and angiographically normal coronaries. Her symptoms had been present for 4 yrs despite pharmacologic treatment for the control of risk factors, with myocardial perfusion scintigraphy revealing an extensive reversible perfusion defect. She was submitted to aerobic training for 4 mos, obtaining significant improvement of the anginal symptoms. Additionally, after the aerobic training program, scintigraphy revealed the disappearance of the myocardial perfusion defect, with a marked improvement of endothelium-dependent vasodilatory response and an improved quality-of-life score. These results suggest that aerobic training can improve endothelial function, leading to a reduction of ischemia and an improved quality-of-life in patients with microvascular myocardial ischemia.
