  1. Results are show as mean with standard deviation in parenthesis or number with percentage in parenthesis as appropriate except for RRT time and measures of vascular function which are displayed as median and inter quartile range. Tests of significance are t-test and Chi-squared between groups, except for measures of vascular function where Mann-Whitney-U was used.
