High Mortality and Vascular Amputation After MALE in Peripheral Artery Disease
The line graphs show the cumulative incidence risk of death after major adverse limb events (MALE) (A) and the cumulative incidence risk of total vascular amputation after MALE (B). The bar graphs show the pre-MALE and post-MALE incidence rate for death (A) and the pre-MALE and post-MALE incidence rate for vascular amputation (B), with the hazard ratios (HRs) (95% confidence intervals) for the index MALE. ∗HR is from the stratified Cox proportional hazards models with the MALE index event modeled as a time-dependent covariate.
