BACKGROUND Patients with low fitness as assessed by cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) have higher mortality and morbidity after surgery. Preoperative exercise intervention, or prehabilitation, has been suggested as a method to improve CPET values and outcomes. This trial sought to assess the capacity of a 4-week supervised exercise programme to improve fitness before liver resection for colorectal liver metastasis. METHODS This was a randomized clinical trial assessing the effect of a 4… CONTINUE READING
