Blood transfusion practices affect CD4+ CD25+ FOXP3+ regulatory T cells/T helper-17 cells and the clinical outcome of geriatric patients with hip fracture

Kaplan-Meier survival curves of all enrolled HF patients in relation to Treg cells, Th17 cells and the ratio of Treg/Th17 cells at 24 h after injury (A–C) and day 7 after surgery (D–F). Differences between the strata were tested using log-rank statistics.
