Exercise intolerance is a major burden for patients with complex congenital heart disease (CHD), significantly affecting their quality of life. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing provides a ...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of exercise training on exercise capacity, physical activity (PA), health-related quality of life (HRQoL), and the psychosocial fac...
The primary aims of this study are to 1. Develop an automated method of quantitation of RV remodeling in terms of regional RV surface curvature and area strain and assess the feasibility, ...
Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common congenital malformations. The right ventricle in the sub-aortic position, or "systemic right ventricle" is one of these complex cardiac di...
Most patients with complex congenital heart disease and cardiomyopathy from acquired heart disease have reduced exercise capacity. Exercise capacity is associated with respiratory muscle s...
Exercise capacity is a well-defined marker of outcome in congenital heart disease. We analyzed seventeen cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) derived parameters and their correlation to exercise ca...
Congenital heart disease (CHD) is a common chronic disease. This study aimed to verify the relationship between spirometry and exercise capacity in children, considering the CHD severity. All cardiopu...
Although the enhancement of early-diastolic intra-left ventricular pressure difference (IVPD) during exercise is considered to maintain exercise capacity, little is known about their relationship in h...
The purpose of this prospective randomised controlled trial was to assess whether home-based, self-selected exercise training is safe, results in high compliance and improves exercise capacity in symp...
Risk prediction using cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in complex congenital heart disease tends to either focus on single diagnoses or complete cohorts. We aimed to evaluate patients with two ...
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
A method of recording heart motion and internal structures by combining ultrasonic imaging with exercise testing (EXERCISE TEST) or pharmacologic stress.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Occlusion of the outflow tract in either the LEFT VENTRICLE or the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart. This may result from CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS, predisposing heart diseases, complications of surgery, or HEART NEOPLASMS.
