Introduction: RV function is strongly associated with clinical outcomes in the population at high cardiovascular risk. The RV chamber has been largely studied especially in the cardiopulmonary disease as predictive aspect for a reduced exercise capacity. More recently particularly deformation parameters as Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) is applied as imaging technique for an accurate evaluation. Renal Transplant Recipient (RTR) is the new category involved in the physical activity program despite the high CV risk.
Aim: To assess the global RV function in the RTR regularly submitted to physical activity (PA) at moderate intensity for 1 year.
Methods:A group of 50 RTR, aged 50 ± 5, was trained for 1 year following a...
