Background/Aim: This study aimed to assess the clinical significance of measuring the arm skeletal muscle mass in patients with cirrhosis. Patients and Methods: Using body composition data measured with the bioimpedance analysis (BIA) method, the skeletal muscle mass index (SMI) values of the arm (arm skeletal muscle mass/height 2) and leg (leg skeletal mass muscle/height 2) were calculated for 353 patients with cirrhosis, and the relationships of these indices to their prognosis were assessed. In addition, overhydration of …
