Abstract: Background: The population of patients with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) is growing, and the estimated life expectancy has increased. Therefore, factors related to lifestyle, such as physical activity (PA), exercise, and the risk of lifestyle-related diseases, to which these patients may be more susceptible, are becoming increasingly important to study. Aim: The aim of this thesis was to increase understanding of physical fitness (muscle function, cardiorespiratory endurance), PA, and h... more
