Table 4 Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis comparing follow-up data (26–54 months) for SF-36 PF (physical function) and WOMAC function in patients operated on with hybrid or cemented technique (dependent variables) adjusted for age, sex, follow-up time and baseline values (explanatory variables) in the multivariate analysis.

From: Patient Relevant Outcomes after total hip replacement. A comparison between different surgical techniques

variable N Multivariate OR 95% CI p-value
Age 198 *0.57 0.48–0.69 <0.01
Sex 198 0.29 0.08–1.06 0.06
Follow-up time 198 0.96 0.90–0.16 0.16
SF-36 PF baseline 196 *0.95 0.91–0.99 <0.01
SF-36 PF follow-up 196 1.03 0.98–1.06 0.07
  1. *per one year or scale unit increase. OR less than 1 means that with increasing age there is a less probability of being operated with hybrid technique. OR = odds ratio, 95% CI = 95% confidence interval
