The decision in favor of a COX-2 is followed by two chance events, symbolized by the open circle at the next branching point following the COX-2 decision. The patient may fare well on COX-2 and no other events or costs will ensue, or the patient will fail COX-2 treatment, redevelop his ulcer, and require a switch from COX-2 to PPI treatment added to a regular NSAID, such as naproxen. 1. 0. The NSAID plus PPI outcome is followed by yet another set of two probabilities. 9 probability, or the patient may develop ulcer complications.

Sensitivity analysis of ulcer management. One-way sensitivity is shown in the left and middle panel; Two-way sensitivity analysis is shown in the right panel.

The exact costs of ABX or COX-2 become secondary, and the outcome of the threshold analysis can be derived based on comparative estimates and considerations of magnitude alone. In essence, the analysis states that ABXs should be given a trial, because even with low chances of success this one-time strategy will still be much cheaper than long term COX-2 therapy.
