Table 5 Correlation analysis

From: Perioperative statin medication impairs pulmonary outcome after abdomino-thoracic esophagectomy

  1. Values of the propensity score-matched patient cohorts were included in Spearman’s rho rank correlation analysis (i.e., n = 52 statin-naïve and n = 26 patients, who received statin medication perioperatively). Correlations between postoperative pneumonia and postoperative C-reactive protein (CRP) values as well as postoperative leukocyte (Leuk) counts in peripheral blood immediately after surgery (POD0) and during postoperative days (POD) 1–10 are presented by the heatmap with no correlation (rsp = 0) in yellow to strong correlation (rsp = 1) in red. Asterisks indicate statistical significance (p value ≤ 0.05)
