  1. Intensive lifestyle changes for reversal of coronary heart disease.

    Article - En anglais

    Context. - The Lifestyle Heart Trial demonstrated that intensive lifestyle changes may lead to regression of coronary atherosclerosis after 1 year.


    - To determine the feasibility of patients to sustain intensive lifestyle changes for a total of 5 years and the effects of these lifestyle changes (without lipid-lowering drugs) on coronary heart disease.


    - Randomized controlled trial conducted from 1986 to 1992 using a randomized invitational design.


    - Forty-eight patients with moderate to severe coronary heart disease were randomized to an intensive lifestyle change group or to a usual-care control group, and 35 completed the 5-year follow-up quantitative coronary arteriography.


    - Two tertiary care university medical centers.


    - lntensive lifestyle changes (10% fat whole foods vegetarian diet, aerobic exercise, stress management training, smoking cessation, group psychosocial support) for 5 years.

    Main Outcome Measures

    - Adherence to intensive lifestyle changes, changes in coronary artery percent diameter stenosis, and cardiac events.


    - Experimental group patients (20 [71% ] of 28 patients completed 5-year follow-up) made and maintained comprehensive lifestyle changes for 5 years, whereas control group patients (15 [75% ] of 20 patients completed 5-year follow-up) made more moderate changes.

    In the experimental group, the average percent diameter stenosis at baseline decreased 1. (...)
