Can short-term knee extensor training improve locomotor muscle microvascular function and exercise tolerance in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction?

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

In the present study, we have documented improved leg blood flow and vascular conductance responses to passive leg movement and increased locomotor muscle exercise capacity following a 6-week localized knee extensor training intervention in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. These preliminary data highlight the potential of this novel exercise intervention to enhance microvascular function and exercise tolerance in this vulnerable patient group.
