AIM A more precise understanding of the aetiology and sequelae of muscle wasting in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is required for the development of effective interventions to target this pathology. METHODS We investigated 49 patients with ESRD (62.6 +/- 14.2 years, 0.3-16.7 years on haemodialysis). Thigh muscle cross-sectional area (CSA), intramuscular lipid and intermuscular adipose tissue (IMAT) were measured via computed tomography as indices of muscle quantity (i.e. CSA) and quality (i… CONTINUE READING
