Table 4 Survival model for patients with diabetes

From: Post-operative stress hyperglycemia is a predictor of mortality in liver transplantation

  Cox model Joint model
HR (95% CI) P value HR (95% CI) P value
Age, years 1.03 (0.98, 1.08) 0.048 1.07 (1.02, 1.12) 0.005
MELD score 1.02 (0.96, 1.09) 0.016 1.07 (1.01, 1.14) 0.016
HCV 2.19 (1.13, 4.23) 0.020 2.36 (1.21, 4.57) 0.010
Glucose profiles See Fig. 1 0.689
Glucose variability (CV) 0.20 (0.01, 3.57) 0.27
  1. The results of the joint models are expressed as hazard ratios with their corresponding confidence intervals. In any case where non-linear trends in glucose levels are a covariate in the survival process, interpretation of the coefficients of association (α) becomes compromised. Accordingly, only the levels of significance (P values) of the coefficients of association are shown
  2. HR (95% CI) means hazard ratio (95% confidence interval)
