Abstract

Liver transplantation is accepted as the standard management for end-stageliver disease in children. Pediatric heart and heart-lung transplant recipients have shown significantly diminished exercise capacities compared withage-matched, able-bodied, control subjects. The primary aim of this study is to compare the fitness levels of a group of pediatric liver transplant (LT) recipients (LT group, 20 boys, 9 girls; age, 8.9 +/- 4.8 years; 56 +/- 35 months posttransplantation) with a group of able-bodied control subjects(22 boys, 12 girls; age, 8.4 +/- 3.8 years). The secondary aim is to compare the performance of the LT group against the Fitnessgram criterion standards. We assessed muscular endurance by means of a partial curl-up, flexibility by means of the back-saver sit and reach, and cardiorespiratory fitnessby means of the progressive aerobic cardiovascular endurance run (PACER). The only significant (P<.05) difference between the 2 groups was the numberof shuttles run in the PACER (control, 16.8 +/- 9.8 VLT, 11.5 +/- 8.4 shuttles). Other differences between the 2 groups mere not significant. With regard to satisfying the Fitnessgram criterion standards, only 35% of the LT group achieved the standards for the partial curl-up, 88% of the LT group achieved the criterion standards for flexibility, and 0% achieved the standards for the PACER. These results indicate that the LT group has diminished exercise capacity. The origins of exercise limitations deserve further investigation.
