  • b First year refers to the 11th year in dialysis-treated patients and the first post-transplant year in those who received a transplant. Similarly, second year refers to the 12th year in dialysis-treated patients and the second post-transplant year in those who received a transplant. Third year refers to the 13th year in dialysis-treated patients and the third post-transplant year in those who received a transplant.
