Sammanfattning (abstract):
Objective: The phase angle identifies changes in tissue's electrical properties assessed by bioelectrical impedance measurement and it can predict prognosis in some conditions. Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is commonly used in patients with severe nutritional problems, but there is a need to improve the clinical decision-making for using PEG. We examined if a decreased phase angle predicts complications, short-term mortality (within 60 days of PEG insertion), or inflammatory markers (high C-reactive protein [CRP] levels or low albumin levels) following PEG insertion.Material and methods: The phase angle was assessed from body resistance and reactance as measured by bioelectrical impedance in 131 patients admitted for PEG. Anthropometrics and clinical biochemical measures were collected at the time of PEG insertion, while complications and mortality were assessed at clinical follow-ups. Multivariable logistic regression analysis provided odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) adjusted for sex, age, body mass index, and comorbidity.Results: A decreased phase angle did not statistically significantly increase the probability of acute complications or short-term mortality, but predicted increased inflammatory markers (CRP10mg/L [OR 1.63, 95% CI 1.02-2.60], albumin<30g/L [OR 2.10, 95% CI 1.24-3.57] and a combination of CRP10mg/L and albumin<30g/L [OR 3.06, 95% CI 1.51-6.19]).Conclusions: A decreased phase angle did not predict acute complications or short-term mortality after PEG insertion, but predicted increased levels of inflammatory markers.
