Table 1 Baseline characteristics of the total cohort and those with and without subsequent atherosclerotic vascular disease (ASVD) hospitalization and mortality

From: Estimated glomerular filtration rate as an independent predictor of atherosclerotic vascular disease in older women

  1. Results are mean ± SD or number and (%). P values are a comparison of those with and without ASVD hospitalizations at 10 years by univariate ANOVA or Chi squared test where appropriate.
