Özet

The preoperative evaluation of pulmonary function is important in renal transplantation candidates. Exercise capacity determined by peak oxygen uptake (peak VO2) is a predictor of perioperative mortality and survival. The aim of this study was to determine the factors associated with the peak VO2 among renal transplantation candidates undergoing hemodialysis.
