Abstract

Lung transplant recipients have an increase in exercise capacity that does not match the improvement in lung function, indicating that poor strength, deconditioning, or other peripheral factors play a significant role in the limitation of exercise benefit posttransplantation. Further elucidation of the mechanisms of exercise limitation may allow for improved exercise outcomes posttransplant.
