A longer history of hemodialysis can lead to sarcopenia in renal transplantation patients
from Transplantation Proceedings
Sarcopenia is a condition in which the amount of skeletal muscle decreases. Recent studies have suggested that sarcopenia is a risk factor for the incidence of postoperative complications, longer hospitalization, and a poorer prognosis. In this study, we examined the impact of sarcopenia in association with a history of hemodialysis in renal transplantation patients.
