Fig. 2

The smooth curve fitting shows the association between plasma LDL-C and the risk of EBB-induced refractory hemorrhage after adjusting for the main confounders (gender, location of the lesion, histological type, smoking, SBP, hemoglobin, neutrophil percentage, PT, APTT, CRP, ALT, triglyceride, HDL-C, apolipoprotein B, and apolipoprotein E). Dotted lines represented the upper and lower 95% confidence intervals. LDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; EBB endobronchial biopsy; SBP, systolic blood pressure; PT, prothrombin time; APTT, activated partial thromboplastin time; CRP, C-reactive protein; ALT, alanine aminotransferase; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol
