  • Model 1: Cox model adjusted for age, sex, time on dialysis, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, diabetes mellitus, left ventricular mass index, left ventricular ejection fraction, atrial enlargement, C-reactive protein, hemoglobin, albumin, and cholesterol. Model 2: Cox model adjusted for covariates in model 1 plus supraventricular arrhythmia. HR, hazard ratio; 95% CI, 95% confidence interval.
