Analysis of Body Composition by Bioelectrical Impedance in Patients With Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) Undergoing Treatment Radioablation
There will be a prospective, longitudinal, comparative. It included 20 patients diagnosed
with hepatocellular carcinoma. As there are a finite number of active patients at the
institute, and no studies with sample size well established, has seen a sample size of 20
The duration of individual monitoring shall be one month to three visits (baseline, week 2
and week 4 after receiving the first radiofrequency ablation). Each visit will be a
nutritional assessment including anthropometry, bioelectrical impedance, biochemical tests,
Psychometric Hepatic Encephalopathy Score (PHES) and Critical Flicker Frequency (CFF).
Anthropometric measures to be taken are weight, height and arm circumference average.
Bioelectrical impedance will be using a single frequency impedance meter (425 to -50 KHz,
Range 0 to 10,000) Bioelectrical Body Composition Analyzer Quantium II RJL Systems. The team
measured the subjects' impedance, resistance, reactance and phase angle by Lean Body program
provided by the manufacturer.
Hepatic encephalopathy be evaluated by testing PHES and was measured CFF, also also be
measured ammonium, tumor necrosis factor, IL-1, IL-6, IL-10, renin angiotensin aldosterone.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Measured with the following parameters:body weight and height (to calculate BMI), triceps skinfold and mid-arm circumference (to calculated mid-arm muscle circumference, fat mass, fat free mass total, intracellular and extracellular body water obtained by bioelectrical impedance analysis and individual vectors obtained by bioelectrical impedance vector analysis.
Participants will be evaluated for a month
