|Multivariable Associations||Odds Ratio (95% CI)†||p Value|
|Patients’ characteristics and angiographic data|
|Heart rate, beats/min||1.08 (1.02–1.14)||0.009|
|Patients’ characteristics, angiographic data, and infarct size‡|
|Heart rate, beats/min||1.08 (1.01–1.16)||0.020|
|Infarct size, % LV mass||1.10 (1.01–1.20)||0.028|
CI = confidence interval; other abbreviations as in Tables 1 and 2.
↵∗ Only statistically significant variables are reported. All variables included in the model are described in the Online Appendix.
↵† The odds ratio (95% CIs) indicates odds of persisting iron at 6 months given exposure to the independent variable.
↵‡ Similar results were obtained when myocardial edema was included instead of infarct size.
