  1. Data presented as mean ± standard deviation for continuous variables and number of cases (%) for dichotomous variables
  2. eGFR estimated glomerular filtration rate by Modification of Diet in Renal Disease study equation, ACEI angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, ARB angiotensin II receptor blocker
  3. aTypes of complications are reported for more information, but for analysis purposes, patients were classified as having any complication or no complication. One patient could have one or more types of complications; the (%) represents the proportion of total cohort (142) for each type of complication
