  1. The table shows comparative analysis of demographic and medical parameters between patients with and those without postponed operations. The x2 criterion was applied for categorical parameters, the t-student (unpaired) for continuous ones. The Kolmogorov-Smirnoff test was used for the evaluation of normal distribution of samples. The level of statistical significance was set at a level for p < 0.05.
