Cardiac rehabilitation and readmissions after heart transplantation
from The Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation
Exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is under-utilized. CR is indicated after heart transplantation, but there are no data regarding CR participation in transplant recipients. We characterized current CR utilization among heart transplant recipients in the United States and the association of CR with 1-year readmissions using the 2013–2014 Medicare files.
