Kaplan–Meier estimates of time to death. Estimated survival rate at 100 days after admission was significantly different between two groups (log-rank test P = 0.001). Risk of in-hospital mortality was significantly higher for sarcopenic patients even when adjusted for APACHE II and sex (Cox proportional hazards regression analysis, hazard ratio 2.55, P = 0.001)
