The prevalence of vascular dysfunction increases with advancing age, as does the loss of muscle mass, strength and function. This systematic review compiles studies that examine both skeletal muscle health and vascular health in healthy adult populations. In this review, we reported significant negative associations between vascular dysfunction and -muscle strength (10 studies); -mass (9 studies); and -function (5 studies). Nine studies reported positive correlations between muscle mass and microvascular health. This review points to the importance of screening for muscle health in adults with vascular dysfunction with a view to initiating early nutrition and exercise interventions to ameliorate functional decline over time.
