BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Sarcopenia, which is subclinical loss of skeletal muscle mass, is commonly observed in patients with malignancy. The objective of this study is to determine the correlation between sarcopenia and operative complications following pancreatectomy for cancer. METHODS A retrospective review of a pancreatectomy database was performed.(More)
Sarcopenia is the subclinical loss of skeletal muscle and strength and has been extensively studied in both the cancer and surgical literature. Specifically, sarcopenia has gained significant recognition as an important prognostic factor for both complications and survival in cancer patients. Herein, we review the current literature to date highlighting the(More)
300 children considered to have had adverse reactions to penicillin were examined. Informed consent was obtained from the parents. Skin tests were conducted by the scratch/prick and intradermal techniques, using benzylpenicilloyl polylysine conjugate and a mixture of minor determinants of penicillin. Specific anti-penicillin IgE antibodies were estimated by(More)
Dear Editor, We have read with interest the Letter to the Editor by Dr. Safer and colleagues regarding our manuscript [1]. Dr. Safer correctly pointed out that muscle mass measurements by cross sectional imaging alone (Total Psoas Area) might not be the optimal method for classification of sarcopenia in cancer patients. They indicated that lumbar skeletal(More)
