Directly from China: Sarcopenia Worsens Liver Transplant Outcomes for Patients With Cirrhosis

Sarcopenia is associated with adverse outcomes after liver transplantation (LT) in patients with decompensated cirrhosis (DC), according to a study published online Sept. 21 in the Journal of Cachexia, Sarcopenia, and Muscle.

Da Zhou, from Nanjing University in China, and colleagues investigated the association between sarcopenia and one-year overall survival (OS) in patients with DC after LT. The analysis included 177 consecutive patients undergoing LT (September 2020 to June 2022).
