[en] Objective: To investigate the relationship between frailty and sarcopenia, by evaluating the prevalence of sarcopenia
among frail, pre-frail and robust elderly nursing home residents in Belgium. Methods: This is an analysis of baseline data
collected from the SENIOR (Sample of Elderly Nursing home Individuals: an Observational Research) cohort. All subjects
received a sarcopenia evaluation, based on the definition proposed by the European Working Group on Sarcopenia in
Older People (EWGSOP). The frailty evaluation was primarily based on FRIED’s definition but also on 9 other operational
definitions. Results: A total of 662 subjects (73.1% of women) were included in this analysis (mean age: 83.2±8.99
years). The prevalence of sarcopenia was 38.1% whereas the prevalence of frail and pre-frail persons was respectively
24.7% and 61.4%. Among frail, pre-frail and robust subjects, respectively 47%, 38.9% and 16.3% were diagnosed
sarcopenic. The prevalence of sarcopenia according to ten different operational definitions of frailty ranged between 32.8
% (i.e. Frail scale Status and Frailty Index) and 47% (i.e. Fried definition). Conclusion: This research highlights that over
a third of nursing home residents are sarcopenic and the percentage is almost 50% among frail subjects; those latter
constitute about 1 in 4 of the population of nursing home residents studied here.
