Background and Aims: This study sought (i) to adapt cross-culturally the Brazilian Portuguese-translated version of the MSRA questionnaire, (ii) to estimate the prevalence of risk of sarcopenia, and (iii) to correlate the MSRA Portuguese version with CC in hospitalized cancer patients. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study developed at the hospital in the year 2018. After being translated and adapted to the Portuguese language, the questionnaire was applied and associated with the measurement of calf circumference (CC) to verify its validity. Results: Of the 45 patients, 71.1% presented significant or severe body weight loss, and 55.5% indicated muscle mass loss (CC < 31 cm). From the MSRA of seven and five items, 91.1 and 84.5% of the patients, respectively, presented risk for sarcopenia. Among those at risk for sarcopenia, more than 60% were aged <70 years, >80% were hospitalized in the last year, more than 40% could not walk > 1000 m, >40% did not eat regularly, and >80% lost >2 kg in the last year. CC was correlated with MSRA of five items (r = 0.46, p = 0.001) and seven items (r = 0.53, p = 0.0002). Furthermore, both versions of the MSRA (seven and five items) presented strong agreement and high reliability. Conclusions: The MSRA full and short version was adapted for a Brazilian Portuguese-translated version and showed strong agreement and high reliability to identify the risk for sarcopenia in hospitalized cancer patients. Therefore, this questionnaire can be used as part of nutritional assessment protocols in order to enable early screening of the risk for sarcopenia View Full-Text
