Respiratory muscle strength is related to handgrip performance in community-dwelling persons aged 80+ from the BUTTERFLY study.

This study aimed to evaluate the association of respiratory muscle strength with sarcopenia and its indicators in the oldest old. Maximum inspiratory pressure (MIP), maximum expiratory pressure (MEP) and sarcopenia related factors (handgrip strength and appendicular lean mass) were evaluated...

Sarcopenia is linked to higher levels of B-type natriuretic peptide and its N-terminal fragment in heart failure: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Sarcopenia is linked to impaired physical function and exercise tolerance. The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to examine the association of sarcopenia and low appendicular skeletal muscle (ASM) with biomarkers of cardiac function, B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP)...

The prevalence and impact of sarcopenia in older cardiac patients undergoing inpatient cardiac rehabilitation – results from a prospective, observational cohort pre-study.

The prevalence of sarcopenia and its impact in older patients undergoing inpatient cardiac rehabilitation (iCR) after cardiac procedure has been insufficiently studied. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of sarcopenia and quantify the functional capacity...

Identification of a novel biomarker for sarcopenia diagnosis using serum metabolomic analysis: a pilot study.

This pilot study compared serum metabolites in participants with and without sarcopenia. Metabolomic techniques were applied to identify serum metabolites and novel biomarkers specific to patients with sarcopenia. In accordance with AWGS2019 criteria, sarcopenia was defined as low muscle mass...
