To investigate the relationship among metabolic equivalents of an exercise stress test (METs of EST), demographic parameters (age, body weight, height, BMI), peak oxygen consumption (VO(2) peak), and six-minute walk distances (6MWD) determined from a six-minute walk test (6MWT). Exercise capacity was estimated by a 6MWT and EST at the sixth week post operation in post coronary artery bypass graft (post CABG n = 17) and post percutaneous coronary intervention (post PCI, n = 13)patients. METs of EST showed: high correlation (p
