Table 4 Association between age and the PCS and MCS scores at 30 days and 1 year follow-up

From: Survival and quality of life after surgical aortic valve replacement in octogenarians

  PCS – 30 days PCS – 1 year
  β (95 % CI) P β (95 % CI) P
Age 0.20 (0.14–0.27) <0.001 −0.00 (−0.11–0.10) 0.90
Age (+ baseline PCS) 0.16 (0.10–0.22) <0.001 −0.07 (−0.17–0.04) 0.19
Age (full model) 0.30 (0.08–0.15) <0.001 0.08 (−0.11–0.16) 0.34
  MCS – 30 days MCS – 1 year
  β (95 % CI) P β (95 % CI) P
Age −0.05 (−0.14–0.03) 0.22 0.07 (−0.02–0.15) 0.11
Age (+ baseline) −0.08 (−0.16–0.00) 0.05 0.05 (−0.03–0.14) 0.20
Age (full model) −0.07 (−0.22–0.83) 0.37 0.08 (−0.08–0.25) 0.32
  1. Table shows the univariable and multivariably adjusted asociation between age and the component scores; the full model also included: sex, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes mellitus, extracardiac atherosclerosis, history of stroke, history of myocardial infarction, previous percutaneous coronary intervention, previous cardic surgery, NYHA class, CCS class, left ventricular function, concomitant coronary artery bypass grafting, aortic peak gradient, logistic EuroSCORE and baseline physical component score for the PCS model, or baseline mental component score for the MCS model. PCS = physical component score, MCS = mental component score
