Multivariable analysis: independent risk factors for in-hospital mortality following neonatal cardiac surgery in a LMIC setting

Risk factorsOR (95% CI)P value
100 g decrease in birth weight1.12 (1.03 to 1.22)0.009
Palliative surgery4.46 (1.91 to 10.44)0.001
Day increase in age0.93 (0.87 to 0.99)0.02
  • Birth weight, surgery type, age, admission epoch and non-cardiac anomaly were considered for regression analysis.
