Diagnosing sarcopenia: Functional perspectives and a new algorithm from the ISarcoPRM
Murat Kara, Bayram Kaymak, Walter Frontera, Ay?e Merve Ata, Vincenzo Ricci, Timur Ekiz, Ke-Vin Chang, Der-Sheng Han, Xanthi Michail, Michael Quittan, Jae-Young Lim, Jonathan F. Bean, Franco Franchignoni, Levent Özçakar and the ISPRM special interest group on sarcopenia
Sarcopenia is an important public health problem, characterized by age-related loss of muscle mass and muscle function. The diagnostic recommendations published to date have addressed total or appendicular muscle mass. However, under the umbrella of the International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ISPRM), experts in the special interest group on sarcopenia (ISarcoPRM) developed a new algorithm, based on regional measurements and functional evaluations of the anterior thigh muscle, which is the most commonly and initially affected condition in sarcopenia. Unlike other suggestions, diseases associated with the renin-angiotensin system are emphasized in this algorithm, and ultrasound has been used for measurement of anterior thigh muscle mass.
