Table 2 Hazard ratios of death, MI and ischemic stroke by risk factors

From: Evaluation of the consequences associated with diffuse vascular disease history in patients diagnosed with peripheral arterial disease: estimates from Saskatchewan health data

Study Measure Death MI Ischemic stroke
Age at index diagnosis 1.08 1.02 1.05
Male gender 1.28 1.69 1.32
History of:    
   MI 1.06** 1.66 1.17*
   Stroke 1.60 1.29* 3.11
   MI+stroke 1.84 1.76 3.26
   Atrial fibrillation 1.17** -- 1.64
   Angina 0.84 1.44 --
   Heart failure 1.89 -- 1.18*
   Hypercholesterolemia 0.77 -- --
   Hypertension -- 1.21** 1.52
   Diabetes 1.37 1.49 --
   TIA 1.04 -- 1.61
Interaction terms    
   TIA × follow-up 1.02* -- --
   MIx follow-up -- -- --
   Stroke × follow-up -- -- 0.95*
   MI + stroke × follow-up 0.96* -- 0.93*
  1. Final models are presented; factors that were not statistically significant were excluded since they can introduce noise and reduce precision of estimates
  2. MI = myocardial infarction
  3. TIA = transient ischemic attack
  4. *p < 0.05
  5. **p < 0.01
  6. p < 0.001
  7. -- = not statistically significant
