  • Data are expressed as means±SDs, medians [25%–75%], or numbers (percentages). Four values were missing. PKT, preemptive kidney transplantation; BMI, body mass index; iPTH, intact parathyroid hormone; Ca, calcium; P, phosphorous; LVMI, left ventricular mass index; CVD, cardiovascular disease.

  • a P value was determined by unpaired t test.

  • b P value was determined by Fisher exact test.

  • c P value was determined by Mann–Whitney test.
