Sarcopenia is characterized by muscle mass depletion and decrease in muscle power or physical activity. In this Lunch & Learn Session, I would like to talk about evaluation of sarcopenia and the impact of pre-transplant sarcopenia on survival after liver transplantation. Moreover, I would like to introduce our new selection criteria for liver transplantation considering sarcopenia.
