Answer

All patients should undergo formal exercise stress testing at an appropriate age as an aid in determining an appropriate exercise program.

Long-term physical restrictions, including restrictions of participation in competitive sports, are a direct function of whether myocardial ischemia is evident at rest or during exercise.

No dietary restrictions are necessary following successful surgical revascularization with subsequent clinical improvement.
