Fifty-two patients completed questionnaires and an incremental walking stress test pre-operatively and 6-months after THA. Twenty-four age-matched control subjects completed the same stress test. Fifty-one patients had less pain 6-months after THA compared to pre-operative levels. Forty-three patients showed an improvement of at least one walking duration category. Patients had compromised cardiovascular fitness compared to the control group with a tendency to improve after THA. Hence, 6-months following THA, deficits exist other than reduced strength as reported in the literature. Prior to THA, the ability to walk longer is compromised by pain and not by poor cardiovascular fitness. Studies on specific rehabilitation programs of varying intensities may demonstrate opportunities to improve the cardiovascular fitness of this population.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Journal of Orthopaedic Research ; 30 (2012), 12. - S. 2025-2030</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/35"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/35"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-02-20T13:53:01Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dc:contributor>Mündermann, Annegret</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Vornholt-Koch, Sandra</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Horstmann, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Grau, Stefan</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Vornholt-Koch, Sandra</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
