The Utility of Psoas Muscle Assessment in Predicting Frailty in Patients Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

Table 4

Comparing the psoas-lumbar vertebral index and REFS scores. A significant relationship was found between high PLVI and the non-frail status ().

Frail as per REFS (score > 7)Non-frail (score < 8)

Sarcopaenia (PLVI < 0.52)78
Non-sarcopaenia (PLVI ≥ 0.52)936
