Table 4 Multivariable logistic regression model for predicting patients with dysphagia

From: Total magnetic resonance imaging of cerebral small vessel disease burden predicts dysphagia in patients with a single recent small subcortical infarct

Variables Odds Ratio 95% CI t P value
Age 1.02 0.99,1.05 1.16 0.25
Gender 1.59 0.70,3.63 1.11 0.26
History of Hypertension 0.41 0.18,0.95 −2.08 0.04

  1. a Higher CRP refers to C-reactive protein ≥3 mg/l; SVD refers to small vessel disease
