Changes in muscle mass may be an objective approach toward measuring the quality of life after surgery, but long-term changes due to surgery without the effect of cachexia remain unclear. Patients with esophageal cancer who underwent esophagectomy and did not experience cancer recurrence for 3 years were analyzed. The psoas muscle mass index (PMI) was assessed before surgery and 7 days, 1 year, and 3 years after surgery. Patients with no change or increased PMI within 7 days after surgery were categorized into the Nondecreasing-PMI group, whereas those with decreased PMI were categorized into the Decreasing-PMI group. Eighty-four and 51 patients were categorized into the Nondecreasing- and Decreasing-PMI groups, respectively. The Decreasing-PMI group had a higher incidence rate of anastomotic leakage than the Nondecreasing-PMI group (25% vs. 12%, respectively; P = 0.042). Moreover, the Decreasing-PMI group showed a significantly greater decrease in the PMI 1 year after surgery than the Nondecreasing-PMI group (−9.2% vs. −4.0%, respectively; P = 0.048). However, although the Decreasing-PMI group had a greater decrease in the PMI than the Nondecreasing-PMI group, no significant difference was observed 3 years after surgery (−9.8% vs. −5.3%, respectively; P = 0.115). A decrease in PMI in the acute phase after esophagectomy may contribute to a long-term decrease in the PMI. Intensive interventions may be beneficial for these patients to improve their long-term quality of life.
