Introduction and Aim: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disease closely related to several risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Previous study demonstrated an impaired cardiopulmonary functional capacity in PCOS women. The present study was performed to evaluate the effects of 3-months exercise training (ET) programme on cardiopulmonary functional capacity in young women with PCOS.Patients and Methods: The study was conducted according...

Introduction and aim: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is associated with an adverse metabolic and cardiovascular risk (CVR) profile, including: diabetes, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension. Heart rate recovery (HRR) is a measure of autonomic dysfunction and an abnormal HRR is also associated with increased mortality. To date, no evaluation of autonomic function in young PCOS women has been performed, therefore the aim of the present study was to evaluate the HR...
