Growth differentiation factor-15 levels and the risk of contrast induced acute kidney injury in acute myocardial infarction patients treated invasively: A propensity-score match analysis

Fig 2

Presented are associations between GDF-15 level classified by the tertiles of the distribution and AKI.

T1, the first tertile; T2, the second tertile; T3, the third tertile. Model A = logistic regression model adjusting for adjusted for age, gender, Killip class ≥ 3, diabetes mellitus, serum creatinine, WBC, Neutrophil ratio, HDL-C, anemia, HbA1c ≥ 7.0%, eGFR < 60ml/min/1.73m2. Model B = logistic regression model adjusting for Model A plus procedural characteristics (contrast volume > 150 ml, contrast exposure time > 60 min, LAD, LCX, RCA, PCI). T1 (GDF-15 ≤ 893.62 ng/L) T2 (893.62 < GDF-15 ≤ 1307.86 ng/L); T3 (GDF-15 > 1307.86 ng/L).
