Abstract

This case report describes the presentation of an obese patient with status Post Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG), severe bilateral knee osteoarthritis who was enrolled into traditional outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program including both weight bearing and non weight bearing aerobic exercise then she developed severe knee pain and effusion after 2 sessions, she stopped the exercise and was treated by NSAID and rest for 2 weeks then her cardiac rehabilitation program has been modified to include non weight bearing aerobic exercise only and resistive exercise. After 36 sessions, there were marked improvements of all coronary risk factors.
