Table 3 Correlation of potential predictive factors for good cosmetic outcome following femtosecond laser-assisted pterygium surgery

From: Cosmetic outcome of femtosecond laser-assisted pterygium surgery

Dependent variables Spearman’s correlation coefficients (95% CI) P-value
Age (years) 0.29 (−0.09 to 0.60) 0.12
Gender (female vs. male) 0.25 (−0.13 to 0.58) 0.18
Preop pterygium severity (T1-T3) 0.24 (−0.15 to 0.57) 0.22
Intraop CAG thickness (μm) −0.10 (−0.45 to 0.29) 0.62
Postop CAG thickness (μm) 0.38 (−0.04 to 0.69) 0.06
  1. CI = confidence interval. A positive R value indicates an inverse correlation between the dependent variable and a good outcome and, vice versa, for a negative R value
