Chronotropic competence in endurance trained heart transplant recipients: heart rate is not a limiting factor for exercise capacity.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to show that the chronotropic potential of the well trained heart transplant recipient (HTR) does not limit exercise capacity. BACKGROUND Chronotropic incompetence is considered to be the main limiting factor of the functional capacity of heart transplant recipients. However, no systematic study had been published… (More)
