Although higher body mass index (BMI) is associated with better survival in patients undergoing dialysis, BMI is not an adequate obesity indicator. We hypothesized that the fat-to-lean (F/L) mass ratio could be a suitable marker of nutritional status and evaluated its prognostic impact on long-term outcomes in patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD).

Lean body mass (LM) plays an important role in mobility and metabolic function. We previously identified five loci associated with LM adjusted for fat mass in kilograms. Such an adjustment may reduce ...
The Revised Cardiac Risk Index (RCRI) was designed to predict risk for cardiac events following non-cardiac surgery. However, there is a paucity of literature that directly addresses the relationship ...
Tricuspid regurgitation pressure gradient (TRPG) is reportedly a predictor of cardiovascular (CV) mortality in patients without atrial fibrillation (AF); its relationship with cardiac outcomes in pati...
WHAT THIS ARTICLE TELLS US THAT IS NEW: BACKGROUND:: Cardiac events after electroconvulsive therapy have been reported sporadically, but a systematic assessment of the risk is missing. The goal of thi...
To compare 1-year all-cause mortality and major adverse cardiovascular events in cardiac arrest survivors with and without posttraumatic stress disorder symptomatology at hospital discharge.
The implementation of prehabilitation in patients operated on for colon cancer in a multimodal rehabilitation regimen improves the values of the "lean body mass" or lean mass index, positi...
I recently published significant associations between circulating gut bacteria-related metabolites with lean and skeletal muscle mass and with measures of physical function in older adults...
The age-associated loss of lean mass is a defining parameter of sarcopenia and may lead to various negative health outcomes such as impairment of physical performance and disability. Furth...
This study evaluates the usefulness of the ΔvapCO2 / Cav02 ratio to predict complications after elective cardiac surgery, comparing it with others markers such as lactate, arteriovenous C...
Bariatric surgery is currently the only method that has proven long-term effectiveness in obesity. Although the benefit of physical activity on weight loss has been demonstrated, no correl...
The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.
A mass-spectrometric technique that is used for microscopic chemical analysis. A beam of primary ions with an energy of 5-20 kiloelectronvolts (keV) bombards a small spot on the surface of the sample under ultra-high vacuum conditions. Positive and negative secondary ions sputtered from the surface are analyzed in a mass spectrometer in regards to their mass-to-charge ratio. Digital imaging can be generated from the secondary ion beams and their intensity can be measured. Ionic images can be correlated with images from light or other microscopy providing useful tools in the study of molecular and drug actions.
A condition of involuntary weight loss of greater then 10% of baseline body weight. It is characterized by atrophy of muscles and depletion of lean body mass. Wasting is a sign of MALNUTRITION as a result of inadequate dietary intake, malabsorption, or hypermetabolism.
A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.
An analytical method used in determining the identity of a chemical based on its mass using mass analyzers/mass spectrometers.
