with loss of muscle mass. Beaudart et al. (2019) [ 15 ], studied the association between these two conditions in 336 Belgian men and women aged 72.5 ± 5.8 years and found that undernutrition was a strong predictor of sarcopenia and that these subjects had a fourfold increased risk of developing severe sarcopenia during a four-year follow-up. According to the definition, the estimation of SMM is a critical component of sarcopenia. There are a variety of skeletal mass assessment tools; however, the choice for clinical practice depends largely on availability

considered to be problematical ( 13 , 14 ). When the proximal femur is fractured, the tension of surrounding tendons and muscle will often lead to dislocation of the fracture ends, which prevents skeletal healing. Surgical treatment of hip fracture involves surgical implants to fix the ends of the femur in their anatomical correct position to enable healing. There is a multitude of different surgical implants used for hip fracture repair, but the implants most commonly used can be categorized in three broad categories: hemiarthroplasty and total hip arthroplasty

Sheffield, and was used to identify premalignant changes in squamous epithelial tissue of the cervix [ 15 ] and perform virtual biopsies of squamous and columnar tissue in the esophagus [ 16 ]. The axial concentric electrode system has been used to determine the condition of a sample of food [ 17 ] and to measure physiological parameters [ 18 ]. In skeletal muscles, the anisotropy produces dissimilar values in orthogonal directions of electrical impedance spectroscopy measurements due to the intrinsic structure; the electrical conductivity along the longitudinal direction

overweight people have lower risk of osteoporosis [ 26 , 27 ]. Additionally, there exist studies that have shown that weight and high BMI are positively associated with BMD, while other studies have shown that body fat percentage influences BMD negatively [ 28 ]. Central or peripheral body fat mass have been reported to be inversely associated with BMD [ 29 ]. Visceral fat has also been reported to have negative impact on trabecular bone mass [ 30 ]. Here, body mass index was analyzed between groups to better understand the effects of weight and height on the skeletal

, may be used to provide information about relative redistributions of fluids between the intra-and extracellular compartments of the monitored segments. disease states [ 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 ] and orthostatic dysfunction [ 7 , 8 ]. These redistributions affect cardiovascular function, water balance and perhaps skeletal muscle function through physiological mechanisms that may be better understood with simultaneous characterization of both the extent and rate of the intercompartment redistributions that take place during fluid management therapy. Tissues are ionic
