Exercise parameters for the chronic aortic dissection patient are broad and research detailing specific exercise protocols is limited. Nevertheless, for clinicians interested in designing a tailored exercise routine for physically active patients, the available literature on physical rehabilitation for patients with chronic aortic disease may be referenced. Moreover, it is of upmost importance that when developing an exercise program that a patient’s particular cardiovascular pathology, including the distribution of the lesion, along with an understanding of hemodynamic principles, relative to the aorta, be respected. With these concepts applied, patients may safely return to recreational sport through the guidance of a thoughtful, clinically based, individualized exercise program.
