All data were expressed as mg/dL, mean ± SD. The mean data were based on multiple measurements ( , only sessions which had at least three parameters, TC, TG, and HDL measured were involved) during the total follow-up period. All values were significantly decreased after the procedure. To convert cholesterol values (TC, HDL, and LDL) from mg/dL to mmol/l, multiply by 0.0259, and, for TGs, multiply by 0.0113. TG indicates triglycerides, LDL indicates low-density lipoprotein, and HDL indicates high-density lipoprotein (HT hematocrit).
