Little is known about the prognostic significance of muscle loss for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HCT). We retrospectively analyzed consecutive patients who received allo-HCT from 2013 to 2015. All patients underwent computed tomography (CT) imaging and bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) within 30 days before allo-HCT. Skeletal muscle area (cm 2) at the third lumbar vertebra level on CT imaging and skeletal muscle mass (kg) measured by BIA were normalized by height in meters squared (m 2) to calculate …
