Özet

Objective: The six minute walk test (6MWT) is used for the assessment of functional capacity in pulmonary and cardiovascular diseases. Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) is the most common cardiac abnormality in systemic sclerosis (SSc). The aim of this study was to define the effect of LVDD on 6MWT parameters in patients with SSc.
