The relationship between treatment duration and mortality is a “V” shaped curve. CART analysis was used to identify the treatment duration thresholds associated with long-term outcome within each EPTB syndrome. For all disease syndromes, mortality decreased with longer treatment duration until a nadir, which was the treatment duration associated with lowest proportion of patients with adverse long-term outcomes. Thereafter, mortality increased with longer duration of therapy.
