Description

The authors compared two approaches for combining disease risk score (DRS) for multiple outcomes: (1) 1:1 matching on prognostic propensity scores (PPS), created using DRS for bleeding and stroke as independent variables in a propensity score (PS) model; and (2) simultaneous 1:1 matching on DRS for bleeding and stroke using Mahalanobis (M)-distance, against traditional PS-matching.
