Table 3 Comparison of biological parameters between survivors and non survivors (ICU mortality) of the septic shock cohort (n = 72)

From: The prognostic value of ADAMTS13 (a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin type 1 repeats, member 13) deficiency in septic shock patients involves interleukin-6 and is not dependent on disseminated intravascular coagulation

  1. Values are expressed as median and interquartile range for continuous variables and as number and proportion for categorical variables. Continuous variables were compared using the non-parametric Mann–Whitney U-test. Categorical variables were compared using the χ2 test. P <0.05 was considered significant.
