Six-minute walk test reflects neurohormonal activation and right ventricular function in systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients.

 

Decreased exercise capacity significantly correlates with biochemical and echocardiographic parameters of right ventricular dysfunction and neurohormonal activation providing a potential link for neuroendocrine derangement in patients with SSc. Pub Med Clin Exp Rheumatol. 2013 Feb 13. (Also see: Diagnosis of Heart Involvement and Right Ventricular Dysfunction)
