• predictors
  • 50 beats/min (hazard ratio [HR] 1.92, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.12 to 3.28, p = 0.017), advanced interatrial block (HR 1.82, 95% CI 1.09 to 3.04, p = 0.022), and left atrial diameter (HR 1.05, 95% CI 1.00 to 1.09, p = 0.029) were independent predictors of recurrence of AF after catheter ablation.
