BACKGROUND Phase angle, determined by bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), detects changes in tissue electrical properties and has been found to be a prognostic indicator in several chronic conditions-such as HIV, liver cirrhosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and lung cancer-and in patients receiving dialysis. OBJECTIVE This study was conducted to investigate the prognostic role of phase angle in advanced colorectal cancer. DESIGN We evaluated a case series of 52 patients with… CONTINUE READING
