Does muscle loss connect to the risk of heart failure?

With heart failure impacting approximately 1 million patients each year in the USA and 26 million worldwide, scientists at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, have examined muscle loss as a potential risk factor.

According to European Medical Journal, Shadpour Demehri, one of the co-lead authors of the study, emphasized the necessity for a deeper comprehension of heart failure risk factors—highlighting the relatively unexplored connection between thigh muscle measurements and heart failure.

Recognizing the common practice of imaging pectoralis muscles during chest CT scans, researchers identified an opportunity to improve heart failure prediction without additional expense or exposure to radiation.
