  • MI, myocardial infarction.

  • *Number of patients with each type of event, regardless of whether it is the initial event for that subject.

  • †The total number of events of each type in all subjects.

  • ‡If a patient had multiple initial events on the same day, then only the most severe initial event is tabulated according to the following order of severity: nonfatal acute MI, CHF, revascularization, and confirmed angina.

  • §The number of additional events of other types experienced by the subjects with a specific event. For example, 24 subjects experienced a total of 26 acute nonfatal MIs, of which it was the initial event for 19 subjects and a subsequent (secondary) event for 7 subjects.
