Table 3 Multivariable analysis of risk factors for severe restenosis after therapeutic bronchoscopy

From: Association of the location and initial degree of malignant central airway stenosis with the risk of severe restenosis after interventional bronchoscopy

Variables Odds ratio 95% CI p value
Initial degree of MCAS 1.020 1.006–1.035 0.005
Initial degree of MCAS tertile    
  Low 1.0 1.0  
  Middle 2.637 1.179–5.897 0.018
  High 2.568 1.178–5.596 0.018
P for trend    0.025
Post-intervention residual stenosis 1.003 0.985–1.022 0.748
Location of the lesion    
  Trachea 1.0 1.0  
  Left main bronchus 8.821 1.850-25.148 0.004
  Right main bronchus 6.583 1.791–24.189 0.005
  Right intermediate bronchus 3.350 0.831–13.511 0.089
