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 (ΔTL<sup>SkM-L</sup>), and the difference between right atrium and leukocyte TL (ΔTL<sup>RA-L</sup>). <b>Solid circles</b> = unadjusted data. <b>Open circles</b> = data adjusted for diabetes. The threshold p value was 0.010. CI = confidence interval; LTL = leukocyte TL; other abbreviation as in Figure 1.
