Keywords Bioelectrical impedance analysis; Body composition; Phase angle; Nutritional assessment; Liver disease; Cirrhosis; Mortality
Core Tip This article provides original data displaying the good performance of the phase angle (PA) obtained by bioelectrical impedance analysis in the evaluation of mortality prognosis in patients with cirrhosis. The findings suggest that the PA is a safe, practical, and inexpensive tool for the prediction of mortality potentially associated with malnutrition.
