Özet

The six-minute walk test (6MWT) evaluates the functional exercise capacity in patients with cardiopulmonary disease. We aimed to investigate the association between 6MWT distance and transthoracic echocardiographic (TTE) findings as well as cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) parameters in Eisenmenger's syndrome (ES) patients waiting for heart-lung transplantation on their initial admission to our center.
