From: Prognostic value of non-specific ST-T changes and left ventricular hypertrophy electrocardiographic criteria in hypertensive patients: 16-year follow-up results from the MINACOR cohort

  N % Incidence rate per 1000 patients/year [95% CI]
Coronary heart disease 21(5) 7.7 4.84 [3 – 7.4]
Peripheral artery disease 14 5.1 3.23 [1.8 – 5.4]
Chronic kidney disease 18 (2) 6.6 4.15 [2.5 – 6.6]
Cerebrovascular disease 9 (3) 3.3 2.07 [0.9 – 3.9]
Dementia 6 2.2 1.38 [0.5 – 3.01]
Heart failure 6 2.2 1.38 [0.5 – 3.01]
Other (not included in the primary endpoint)^ 8 2.9 1.84 [0.8 – 3.6]
  1. *47 patients had one cardiovascular event, 10 patients had 2 cardiovascular events and 5 patients had 3 cardiovascular events. Only first cardiovascular event was considered for the analysis.
  2. Number of deceased patients; ^ Atrial fibrillation (6 patients), Mobitz Type II A-V block (1 patient), subclavian artery stenosis (1 patient); CI: confidence interval.
