  • Figure 2. Kaplan–Meier Estimates of the Probability of Survival in the Group Assigned to Receive an Implantable Defibrillator and the Group Assigned to Receive Conventional Medical Therapy. The difference in survival between the two groups was significant (nominal P=0.007, by the log-rank test). Figure 3. Hazard Ratios and 95 Percent Confidence Intervals for Death from Any Cause in the Defibrillator Group as Compared with the Group Assigned to Receive Conventional Medical Therapy, According to Selected Clinical Characteristics. The hazard ratios in the various subgroups were similar, with no statistically significant interactions. The dotted vertical line represents the results for the entire study (nominal hazard ratio, 0.66, without adjustment for the stopping rule). The horizontal lines indicate nominal 95 percent confidence intervals. LVEF denotes left ventricular ejection fraction, and NYHA New York Heart Association.
