Figure 3: Risk of Post-Operative Complications Following Cardiovascular Surgery According to TL and Intraindividual Telomere Length Differences

Odds ratios for developing a post-operative complication per SD in each of leukocyte TL, the difference between skeletal muscle and leukocyte TL (ΔTLSkM-L), and the difference between right atrium and leukocyte TL (ΔTLRA-L). Solid circles = unadjusted data. Open circles = data adjusted for diabetes. The threshold p value was 0.010. CI = confidence interval; LTL = leukocyte TL; other abbreviation as in Figure 1.
