The Sports Cardiology Section of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC) released recommendations to encourage safe regular physical activity, including sports, for all individuals with coronary artery disease. The document is based on current evidence, but often needed to rely on clinical experience and expert opinion. The authors discuss “asymptomatic athletes with absence of clinically evident coronary artery disease”, “clinically proven coronary artery disease”, “recommendations”, and “non-coronary artery disease related myocardial ischaemia”.
