Abstract: Objective: To demonstrate the superiority of total psoas volume (TPV) over total psoas area (TPA) in terms of predicting post-operative complications in living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT). Methods: The TPA and TPV were assessed in 32 recipients who underwent CT before LDLT. The TPA was measured using an axial CT image at the level of the upper margin of the fourth lumbar vertebral body. The TPV was calculated using all the CT images from the muscle origin through the level of the pubic symphysis. Patients were divided into a sarcopenia group and nosarcopenia group based on the medians of normalized TPA (nTPA) and normalized TPV (nTPV). We calculated the odds ratio (OR) of post-operative respiratory complications in relation to nTPA and nTPV, respectively. Results: Out of 32 recipients, 17 recipients experienced at least 1 post-operative respiratory complication. The OR for males according to nTPV [OR=15.00, 95% confidence interval (CI) =1.03-218.31; p=0.031] was higher than that for nTPA (OR=3.33, 95% CI=0.36-30.70; p=0.280). The OR for females according to nTPV (OR=4.00, 95% CI=0.56-28.40; p=0.16) was the same as that for nTPA (OR=4.00, 95% CI=0.56-28.40; p=0.16). Conclusion: Pre-operative volume of the skeletal muscle might be a better predictor for post-operative risks in LDLT recipients than pre-operative area of the skeletal muscle. Advances in knowledge: Post-operative risks for respiratory complications in LDLT recipients might be evaluated more accurately by using TPV instead of TPA.
