Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: To a considerable extent, the advent of the term sarcopenia has contributed to the focus on this important condition and its effects on the quality of life and care of older persons. It is hoped that the advances in our understanding of the etiology and treatment of sarcopenia will further contribute to placing this diagnosis and treatment at a higher priority in the management of older persons and prevention of disability.
