Carotid intima-media thickness is associated with incidence of hospitalized atrial fibrillation.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) is a measure of arterial thickening and a risk predictor for myocardial infarction and stroke. It is unclear whether IMT also predicts atrial fibrillation (AF). We explored the association between IMT and incidence of first AF hospitalization in a population-based cohort.
