Sarcopenia: epidemiology, challenges and opportunities for multidisciplinary practice
Sarcopenia, the loss of skeletal muscle mass, strength and function with age, is widely recognised as a major clinical problem for older people that is associated with serious health consequences in terms of frailty, disability, morbidity and mortality, as well as high health care costs. Recent algorithms have provided a systematic approach to case-finding. This article reviews the epidemiology and pathogenesis of sarcopenia and presents an overview of comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) as a multidisciplinary-based approach to the assessment, management and follow up of the older patient.

Abstract

Sarcopenia, the loss of skeletal muscle mass, strength and function with age, is widely recognised as a major clinical problem for older people that is associated with serious health consequences in terms of frailty, disability, morbidity and mortality, as well as high health care costs. Recent algorithms have provided a systematic approach to case-finding. This article reviews the epidemiology and pathogenesis of sarcopenia and presents an overview of comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) as a multidisciplinary-based approach to the assessment, management and follow up of the older patient.
