  1. Values are in n (%) or mean (± standard deviation)
  2. BMI Body mass index, AST aspartate aminotransferase, ALT alanine aminotransferase, NLR neutrophil/lymphocyte ratios, L/S ratio liver-to-spleen attenuation ratio, PMI psoas muscle index
  3. aPMI was calculated by CT image as total psoas muscle area at the level of third lumber vertebrate normalized to the squared patient height (cm2/m2)
