Variable Univariate analysis Multivariate analysis
Hazard ratio 95% confidence interval Level of significance (p) Hazard ratio 95% confidence interval Level of significance (p)
Thrombocyte count (exp9/L) 0.992 0.984–0.999 0.024 0.999 0.991–1.007 0.724
MELD score 1.167 1.097–1.241 <0.0001 1.132 1.056–1.214 <0.0001
Antibiotic treatment at paracentesis 3.422 1.518–7.718 0.003 2.759 1.095–6.952 0.031
Ascites leukocyte count (exp9/L)/100 1.019 1.001–1.037 0.039 0.997 0.958–1.038 0.900
Low-level ascites MPs (<488.4/μL) 6.552 1.991–21.561 0.002 8.723 1.148–66.308 0.036
  1. High MELD score, antibiotic treatment at paracentesis and low-level ascites MP (<488.4 MP/μL) were independent risk factors for death after 30 days
  2. Values highlighted in italics are significant after multivariate analysis
