Sarcopenia and Short-Term Outcomes After Esophagectomy: A Meta-analysis.


BACKGROUND:This meta-analysis aimed to investigate the value of preoperative sarcopenia in predicting complications after esophagectomy. Clinicopathologic characteristics of sarcopenia patients, which may support sarcopenia management, also were studied. METHODS:This study searched for articles describing an association between sarcopenia and short-term outcomes after esophagectomy using PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library. Mantel-Haenszel and inverse variance models were used for the meta-analyses of end points. RESULTS:The meta-analysis included 14 studies comprising a total of 2387 patients. Sarcopenia was significantly associated with advanced age (weighted mean difference [WMD], 3.48; 95% confidence interval [CI], 2.22-4.74), lower body mass index (WMD - 2.22; 95% CI - 2.65 to - 1.79), squamous cell carcinoma (odds ratio [OR], 2.78; 95% CI 1.72-4.47), advanced clinical tumor stage (OR 1.65; 95% CI 1.28-2.15), and neoadjuvant therapy (OR 1.87; 95% CI 1.38-2.53). The sarcopenia patients showed lower preoperative albumin levels (WMD - 0.11; 95% CI - 0.19 to - 0.04) than the nonsarcopenia patients. Sarcopenia was significantly predictive of pneumonia (OR 2.58; 95% CI 1.75-3.81) and overall complications (OR 1.52; 95% CI 1.07-2.15) after esophagectomy. The sarcopenia patients also showed nonsignificant increases in the risks of anastomotic leakage (OR 1.29; 95% CI 0.99-1.67), vocal cord palsy (OR 2.03; 95% CI 0.89-4.64), and major complications (≥ Clavien-Dindo grade III; OR 1.30; 95% CI 0.95-1.79) but not increased operation time, blood loss, or mortality. CONCLUSIONS:Preoperative sarcopenia assessment showed considerable potential for predicting postoperative complications for esophageal cancer patients. To realize this potential, more effective diagnostic criteria and severity classifications for sarcopenia are warranted.
