Figure 2

The persistent risk of MACE (a) up to 3 years following an index MI (adapted from Blin et al., 2016) [3] and (b) up to 4.5 years following an index MI stratified by age (<72 years old versus ≥72 years old) and risk category (low versus high) (adapted from Jernberg et al., 2015) [4]. High-risk patients were predefined as those with ≥1 of the following risk factors prior to index; MI: diabetes mellitus, at least one MI prior to index MI event, CABG (proxy for multi-vessel CAD), PAD, stroke, heart failure, or diagnosis of chronic renal dysfunction. CABG, coronary artery bypass graft; CAD, coronary artery disease; CV, cardiovascular; HR, high risk; LR, low risk; MACE, major adverse cardiovascular events; MI, myocardial infarction; PAD, peripheral artery disease.
