  1. Pearson’s correlation coefficient analyses were performed using change variables (pre- to post-surgery percentage change) in the total patient cohort (n = 39) between serum biochemistry (bold) and mitochondrial genes
  2. mtATP6 mitochondria-DNA-encoded ATP synthase subunit 6 (complex V), UCP2 uncoupling protein 2, COX4I1 Cytochrome c oxidase subunit 4 isoform 1 (complex IV)
