Abstract Question. Do exercise training programmes improve survival in people with chronic heart failure? Study design. Systematic review with meta-analysis. Main results. Fewer deaths occurred in the exercise group compared with control at a median follow-up of about 2 years (exercise: 22% [88/395]; control 26% [105/406]; hazard ratio 0.65, 95% CI 0.46 to 0.92). Fewer deaths or hospital admissions occurred in the exercise group compared with control (exercise: 32% [127/395]; control 43% [173/406]; hazard ratio HR 0.72, 95% CI 0.56 to 0.93). Authors' conclusions. Exercise training improves survival and time to death or admission to hospital in people with chronic heart failure due to left ventricular systolic dysfunction.
