Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary disease: Association with exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension and right ventricle adaptation over time
Anno:
2024
Background and aim: Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary disease (CTEPD) is a progressive condition caused by fibrotic thrombi and vascular remodeling in the pulmonary circulation despite prolonged anticoagulation. We evaluated clinical factors associated with CTEPD, as well as its impact on functional capacity, pulmonary haemodynamics at rest and after exercise, and…
Taking a walk on the heart failure side: comparison of metabolic variables during walking and maximal exertion
Anno:
2024
Background: Background: Although cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is the gold standard to assess exercise capacity, simpler tests (i.e. 6-minute walk test, 6MWT) are also commonly used. Aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between cardiorespiratory parameters during CPET and 6MWT in a large, multicenter, heterogeneous population. Methods:…
