Table 5 Multivariate logistic regression analysis of TLR4 and MMP9 expression in situ with AAA size and thrombus

From: The elevated expression of TLR4 and MMP9 in human abdominal aortic aneurysm tissues and its implication

Variables AAA size (> 5.5 cm vs. ≤ 5.5 cm) Thrombus within AAA (yes vs. no)
OR (95%CI) P valuea OR (95%CI) P valueb
TLR4 expression (high vs. low) 6.211 (1.226–31.480) 0.027 2.006 (0.427–9.426) 0.378
MMP9 expression (high vs. low) 1.275 (0.325–5.004) 0.728 5.494 (1.181–25.562) 0.030
  1. aP value after the adjustment for hypertension
  2. bP value after the adjustment for smoking and hypertension
