This article is from World Journal of Surgical Oncology, volume 12.AbstractBackground: Radical cystectomy RC is the standard treatment for patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer BC, and it is also a valid option for selected patients with high-risk non-muscle-invasive BC. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect on the lower skeletal muscle index SMI of short-term postoperative complications of radical cystectomy RC in patients with bladder cancer BC. Methods: A total of 247 patients who received RC for BC and 204 age-matched healthy population-based controls were retrospectively assessed. SMI was measured by preoperative computed tomography scans at the L4 to L5 level. Early complications were graded by Clavien-Dindo classification; severity of grade III or greater was identified as a severe complication. Logistic regression was utilized to determine the relationships between covariables and severe complications. Results: A total of 125 50.61%-19 7.69% patients exhibited overall-severe complications during the early postoperative period. SMI was strongly associated with gender P
