Abstract (Croatian)
Mišićna masa mijenja se tijekom ljudskog vijeka. U početku se mišićna masa jako povećava, što je u vezi s rastom i razvojem. Kako starimo mišićna masa se postepeno smanjuje. U ovom radu opisane su neke promjene koje se događaju u mišićima tijekom starenja. Ostarjeli skeletni mišići, a posebno mišićna vlakna tipa II, puno su podložniji atrofiji nego mišići mlađe populacije. Mišići starijih osoba imaju i ograničenu regenerativnu sposobnost. Mnogobrojni su čimbenici koji utječu na ovo dobno uvjetovano propadanje skeletne muskulature, a navedeno stanje naziva se sarkopenija.
Abstract (English)
Muscle size changes across the human lifespan, initially showing rapid increases due to grow and later gradual decreases due to aging. There are same changes in muscle mass and performance with aging. Aged skeletal muscles, particulary type II muscle fibers, are more susceptible than younger ones to muscle damage and display an impaired regenerative capacity. A number of factors have been proposed as contributing to age related loss of skeletal muscle and its contractility. This disease state termed sarcopenia.
