Table 3. Multivariable parametric modela of post-ACS mortality (N = 7213)b

HR(95% CI)P Value
a The following covariates fell out of the model: current smoker, cardiac arrest, diabetes as cause of renal failure, and peripheral vascular disease. Previous history of coronary artery disease was not included in the model because all patients included had an ACS event.
b PD, peritoneal dialysis; HD, hemodialysis.
