Therefore, the objective of this study is to assess the nutritional status of hospitalized patients by using different methods and techniques, such as: adductor pollicis muscle
thickness (APMT), handgrip strength (HGS), body mass index (BMI), calf circumference (CC) and arm circumference (AC).

Along with these neurological findings she had the ensuing physical deformities: complete atrophy of the left hypothenar eminence and adductor pollicis muscle
, as well as the presentation of claw hand, which is a classic representation of an injury to the ulnar nerve.

The authors  found that beginning at the time of menopause in women without hormone replacement there was a dramatic decline in specific force of the adductor pollicis muscle
, which was not observed in women on ORT.
