Deaths during the subsquent 14 years were obtained form the Veterans Administration Beneficiary Identification and Record Location System and the National Death Index.
Relatioships between pretreatment data and death were sought using khi2and z-tests for bivariate comparisons and logistic regression for multivariate analyses.
