  • 95% CIs are not shown; however, data marked with a indicate that the 95% CIs (for the mean difference) did not include 0 (i.e., statistical significance at the 5% level). For the 95% CIs, see Fig. 2 and online Supplemental Fig. 5. For the corresponding table for all 74 patients, see online Supplemental Table 2.
