Table 2 Hazard ratios for a 1 SD increase of the log transformed values of NT-proBNP and coronary artery calcium score for fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality

From: Additive prognostic value of plasma N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide and coronary artery calcification for cardiovascular events and mortality in asymptomatic patients with type 2 diabetes

Label   Cardiovascular events All-cause mortality
Number of events (%)   40 (20) 26 (13)
NT-proBNP Unadjusted 1.9 (1.4–2.7)c 2.2 (1.4–3.4)c
  Adjusted 1.9 (1.3–2.7)b 2.2 (1.4–3.6)b
  Fully adjusted 1.7 (1.1–2.5)a 1.9 (1.2-3.2)a
Coronary artery calcium score Unadjusted 3.6 (2.0–6.4)c 3.4 (1.7–6.8)c
  Adjusted 3.7 (1.9–7.4)c 2.9 (1.4–6.3)b
  Fully adjusted 3.4 (1.7–6.7)c 2.6 (1.2–5.6)b
  1. Values are hazard ratios (95 % confidence intervals) and represent a 1 SD increase of the log transformed values of NT-proBNP and coronary artery calcium score
  2. Adjusted models include sex, age, LDL and HDL cholesterol, smoking, HbA1c, eGFR, systolic blood pressure and urinary albumin excretion rate. Fully adjusted models additionally include coronary artery calcium score and NT-proBNP mutually
  3. Significance of the hazard ratios: aP < 0.05, bP <0.01, cP <0.0001
