Time from injury to surgery, hours 8 (5–13) 75 (42–111) < 0.01
Length of ICU stay, days 10 (3–39) 11 (4–28) 0.87

In-hospital mortality 11/291 (3.8) 5/223 (2.2) 0.32
  1. Data given as number of positive observations/total number of observations (percentage) or as median (interquartile range). For each variable, the number of missing observations can be obtained as the difference between the total number of patients in each phase and the total number of observations. ICU intensive care unit
