Core Tip Muscle mass wasting may occur in post-cardiac surgery patients affecting outcome. We assessed the clinical significance of muscle mass in post-cardiac surgery after intensive care unit (ICU) admission. Sonographic assessment of quadriceps muscle thickness was performed to 165 post-cardiac surgery patients for 7 d or until ICU discharge. The results of the study showed a trend to a decreased muscle mass in post-cardiac surgery patients. There was also an association between muscle mass andduration of mechanical ventilation (MV) support and ICU length of stay. Sonographic assessment seems to be a valid method to quantify quadriceps muscle mass in patients after cardiac surgery.
