  1. Risk of incident AF associated with the B/T ratio, categorized into percentiles (perc) and dichotomized at the median, analyzed by Cox regression and expressed as HR (95% CI). Multivariate analysis adjusted for sex, hypertension, BMI, and left ventricular hypertrophy. Participants with prevalent AF at baseline were excluded from this analysis. Missing data on left ventricular hypertrophy (n = 6)
