Core Tip Our study proposes that six-minute walking test, a simple exercise test, can be applicable in the evaluation of cirrhotic patients. This is a well-none routine assessment in patients with cardiopulmonary diseases, where it is used to predict mortality in this population. Its use in liver cirrhosis is limited. Patients with chronic hepatic insufficient are at risk of progressively muscle loss, frailty, and exercise limitation, all factors directly associated with poor survival. We propose by using six-minute walk test a practical and simple manner of assess this risks and provide a better understanding of how exercise limitation can directly affect survival.
