Table 2 Predictors of incident AF in patients with heart failure or a recent MI

From: Incidence of Atrial Fibrillation in Patients with either Heart Failure or Acute Myocardial Infarction and Left Ventricular Dysfunction: A Cohort Study

  Hazard Ratio* 95%CI
Dofetilide compared to placebo 0.58 0.40-0.82
Heart failure 3.14 1.78-5.53
5-year age increase 1.17 1.06-1.28
Male gender 1.80 1.15-2.82
Diabetes 1.40 0.92-2.15
History of IHD 0.88 0.61-1.27
5-percentage increase in LVEF 0.87 0.77-0.99
  1. AF, atrial fibrillation; CI, confidence interval; IHD, ischemic heart disease; LVEF, left ventricular ejection fraction; MI, myocardial infarction.
  2. *Adjusted for heart failure, age, gender, diabetes, IHD and LVEF
