## Figure 2.
Recalculation of the numbers at risk - example classified as "not consistent". Kaplan-Meier plot of the trial presented in figure 1, but using fictive data. In
this example it is assumed that no patient was reported as lost to follow-up in either
group and minimum follow-up was 120 days. As in figure 1, we read the survival probability
from the curve at 90 days. We multiplied the survival probability by the number of
randomized patients in order to recalculate the number of patients at risk (number
at risk: 19 in the prednisolone group vs. 13 in the control group). As the reported
number at risk was smaller in the prednisolone group, four patients must have been
censored before day 90. As no losses to follow up were reported, this fictive example
would be classified as "not consistent".
