  • Data expressed as mean±SD or n (%) unless otherwise indicated. MACE is defined as MI, stroke, or cardiovascular death. Expanded MACE is MACE plus coronary revascularization or peripheral arterial disease. CVD indicates cardiovascular disease; CVR, cardiovascular risk; MACE, major adverse cardiac event; MI, myocardial infarction.
