ABSTRACT
Aims: The effects of exercise training in chronic heart failure are well established, however, they have not been evaluated in Chagas cardiomyopathy (ChC). We sought to determine the effects of exercise training on functional capacity, health-related quality of life (HQoL), and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels in patients with ChC.
