Logistic regression analysis of cardiac event predictors. Variables included age, history of coronary artery disease, smoking, left ventricular function, abnormal stress-induced electrocardiographic (ECG), abnormal myocardial perfusion imaging, peripheral vascular disease, creatinine clearance (CrCl) <60 ml/min/1.73 m2, micro- and macroalbuminuria.

CI = confidence interval; OR = odds ratio.
