  • Values are n (%) for categorical and mean±SD or median (25th–75th percentile) for continuous variables. (1) age, BMI and hypertension; (2) Crude: corrected for se; (3) age and BMI. Detailed: corrected for sex.

  • AF, atrial fibrillation; BMI, body mass index; CB, cryoballoon; CK-MB, creatine kinase MB isoenzyme; DeltaPerDuration, hs-cTnT release per duration of energy delivery; DeltaPerLength, hs-cTnT release per cm lesion; age and BMI. Detailed, corrected for sex; IMEA, irrigated multielectrode ablation; LA, left atrium; LVEF, left ventricular ejection fraction; RF, radiofrequency; duration, duration of energy delivery; hs-cTnT, high-sensitive cardiac troponin T.
