Comparison of prognostic impact between the child-pugh score and skeletal muscle mass for patients with liver cirrhosis

Nishikawa H et al.
Used Parameters : SMI

Publication Year : 2017

Country : Japan

Journal : Nutrients

Aims: To investigate the influence of skeletal muscle mass index (SMI) as determined by bioimpedance analysis (BIA)(appendicular skeletal muscle mass/(height) 2) on survival by comparing the Child-Pugh score in patients with liver cirrhosis (LC, n= 383, average age= 65.2 years). Patients and methods: In terms of comparison of the effects of SMI and other markers on survival, we used time-dependent receiver operating characteristics (ROC) analysis. Results: The average SMI for male was 7.4 cm 2/m 2 whereas that for female was …
