Figure 2: Cumulative rates of cardiovascular death in relation to platelet count

Kaplan-Meier survival analysis with cumulative event-free survival of cardiovascular death at 90 days according to platelet count for patients in the first, second, third, and fourth quartiles.

The second quartile with a platelet count of 208–246x109/L showed the lowest mortality, though the results did not reach a significant level (Log rank: p=0.083), adapted according to Bigalke et al. [22].
