Objectives The association between low skeletal muscle mass and left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD), a predictor of future heart failure, is largely unexplored. We investigated the relationship between relative muscle mass and LVDD. Methods We conducted a cross-sectional study in 67,106 Koreans who underwent an echocardiography as part of a comprehensive health examination between January 2012 and December 2014. Skeletal muscle mass index (SMI)[SMI (%)= total skeletal muscle mass (kg)/body weight (kg)× 100] …
