In this cohort study of long-term (> or = 180 days) use of NSAIDs in Taiwanese adults, no significant differences in the risk for treatment-related CVEs were observed between groups prescribed 1 of 4 nonselective NSAIDs (etodolac, nabumetone, ibuprofen, or naproxen) or celecoxib. History of CVD was the most significant determinant of CVE risk. Patients with preexisting medical conditions appeared to have a significantly higher risk for CVEs associated with the use of NSAIDs and celecoxib compared with patients without these conditions.
