Decreased skeletal muscle has been identified as a relevant factor for arterial stiffness but has not been thoroughly investigated in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between skeletal muscle and arterial stiffness in PD patients. A cross-sectional study of 658 prevalent PD patients with a mean brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) of 1714 (±501) cm/s and mean skeletal muscle mass of 26.6 (±5.4) kg was performed. Skeletal muscle mass level was significantly higher in males than …
