Echocardiographic Screening for Rheumatic Heart Disease in Indigenous Australian Children: A Cost–Utility Analysis

PMCID: 5524001
PMID: 28255077
DOI: 10.1161/JAHA.116.004515

[…] version 3.1.0, 2015; R Foundation for Statistical Computing) was used for plots (ggplot2, version 1.0.1, 2015) and for obtaining transition probabilities from the Aalen‐Johansen transition estimates (msSurv, version 1.1‐2, 2012). […]


Rheumatic Heart Disease Severity, Progression and Outcomes: A Multi‐State Model

PMCID: 5523987
PMID: 28255075
DOI: 10.1161/JAHA.116.003498

[…] ts (15–24 years).The probabilities of being in a particular RHD health state at the end of each month following diagnosis were obtained from the Aalen‐Johansen transition estimates calculated by the “msSurv” package (version 1.1‐2, 2012), with corresponding 95% CI calculated from 200 bootstrap samples. Plots were constructed using the “ggplot2” package (version 1.0.1, 2015). […]


Cost effectiveness of adherence to IDSA/ATS guidelines in elderly patients hospitalized for Community Aquired Pneumonia

BMC Med Inform Decis Mak
PMCID: 4791973
PMID: 26976388
DOI: 10.1186/s12911-016-0270-y

[…] e., the number ‘at-risk’ of making the i → j transition). Non-parametric estimates of the conditional transition probabilities were then obtained using the Aalen-Johansen estimator with the R package msSurv [, ]. Parametric estimates were obtained by first fitting time-dependent Cox regression models to each of the possible transition hazards outlined in Fig. . These estimates of the transition ha […]


Causal inference in multi state models–sickness absence and work for 1145 participants after work rehabilitation

BMC Public Health
PMCID: 4619267
PMID: 26498223
DOI: 10.1186/s12889-015-2408-8

[…] tting.With the increasing attention on multi-state modelling of event-history data, more and more software packages have been made available, especially in R []; for example the mstate [], msm [] and msSurv [] packages. See the latter, or the books of Beyersmann et al. [] and Willekens [], for detailed overviews of available R packages. The computations in this paper has been performed in R using […]


How to handle mortality when investigating length of hospital stay and time to clinical stability

PMCID: 3269825
PMID: 22029846
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2288-11-144

[…] s an estimate of the variance which has been shown to be suboptimal []. Alternative R packages which can handle left-truncated data and use the Greenwood-type estimate of the variance include etm [], msSurv [], and mstate []. These are specialized packages for multi-state models, of which competing risks is a special case. However, only the cmprsk package includes test statsitics [] for comparing […]
