Özet

In heart transplant patients it is common to observe a reduced exercise capacity and diminished quality of life. The objective of this study was to compare the effectiveness of a hospital-based exercise program versus that of a home-based exercise program on the functional capacity, quality of life, and psychological symptoms among heart transplant patients.
