Background/Aim: Skeletal muscle mass (SMM) is often depleted in patients with gastric cancer undergoing gastrectomy. Using a novel method, we evaluated the effect of SMM depletion after gastrectomy on disease prognosis. Patients and Methods: The maximum cross-sectional area of the psoas-muscle (MCA-PM) was measured before surgery and at 1 year after in 233 patients with gastric cancer who underwent radical gastrectomy to determine the ratio (MCA-PMR) as an indicator of SMM depletion. Results: The MCA-PMR …
