A comparison of the baseline characteristics of the patients in the two groups. (A) A comparison of the number of patients according to the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) levels in the transplantation (Trans) and control groups. Statistically significant differences were detected using the chi-squared test. (B-D): A comparison of the mean ages (B), mean baseline Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM) scores (C) and mean baseline language developmental quotients (LDQs) (D) of the patients in the transplantation (Trans) and control groups is shown. Statistically significant differences were detected between the groups using a Student t-test.
