Adjusted HR for primary composite endpoint evaluating the association between prior alcohol consumption and major cardiovascular outcomes in the study cohort (n=604)

HR (95% CI)P value
Indexed left atrial volume (per 10 mL/m2)1.12 (1.07 to 1.17)0.000004
Presence of midwall fibrosis2.33 (1.44 to 3.76)0.0006
Left ventricular ejection fraction (per 10%)0.7 (0.58 to 0.84)0.0002
Prior history of sustained VT3.21 (1.26 to 8.18)0.01
Moderate alcohol excess prior to recruitment compared with no alcohol excess*1.02 (0.57 to 1.84)0.94
  • *No alcohol excess includes patients with no alcohol consumption and consumption within guideline limits.

  • VT, ventricular tachycardia.
