Sarcobesity (SO) is traditionally defined as the association between low muscle mass and obesity and has been reported to worsen prognosis after curative resection for colorectal cancer (CRC). This study aimed to propose a new definition of SO based on computed tomography measurements of the skeletal muscle area (SMA) and visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and to assess its implications on long-term survival after curative resection for stage I-III CRC.

Abstract

Sarcobesity (SO) is traditionally defined as the association between low muscle mass and obesity and has been reported to worsen prognosis after curative resection for colorectal cancer (CRC). This study aimed to propose a new definition of SO based on computed tomography measurements of the skeletal muscle area (SMA) and visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and to assess its implications on long-term survival after curative resection for stage I-III CRC.
