Comparing demographics between study cohort and subjects without echocardiographic evaluation. Values represent count (percentage), mean (standard deviation) or median (25th, 75th percentile).
(a) Kaplan-Meier plot for mortality stratified by LA2D median and censored graft loss. (b) Kaplan-Meier plot of mortality stratified by LA2D median (53 mm). In this plot also patients who died in the first year are included.
Hazard ratio and 95% confidence interval of echo parameters and demographic parameters in univariate models.
Log hazard ratio for left atrial diameter as a spline curve in the model for mortality. There is no non-linearity evident. Therefore we used the linear model for further evaluation.
Multivariate Cox model with year of transplantation added, which was not included by the purposeful selection algorithm.
Hazard ratio and 95% confidence interval for mortality in a cause specific model and a competing risk model (Fine and Gray model). In these analyses only cardiac death was counted as event.
