  • Coefficients show proportionate increase in risk over baseline event rates where the latter relate to rates in patients in the conservative arm without any of the risk factors included in the analyses.

  • *The variable indicating a previous myocardial infarction was updated to estimate Equation 3.

  • †Shape parameter in the Weibull model where a value less than (above) one indicates a decreasing (increasing) hazard over time.
