Our aim is to assess the association between adherence to a Mediterranean alcohol drinking pattern and AF incidence. Methods and results: A total 6527 out of the 7447 participants in the PREDIMED trial met our inclusion criteria. A validated frequency food questionnaire was used to measure alcohol consumption. Participants were classified as non-drinkers, Mediterranean alcohol drinking pattern (MADP) (10–30 g/d in men and 5–15 g/day in women, preferably red wine consumption with low spirits consumption), low-moderate drinking (<30 g/day men y and < 15 g/day women), and heavy drinking. We performed multivariable Cox regression models to estimate hazard ratios (HR) with 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) of incident AF according to alcohol drinking patterns. After a mean follow up of 4.4 years, 241 new incident AF cases were confirmed. Alcohol consumption was not associated to AF incidence among low-moderate drinkers (HR: 0.96; 95%CI: 0.67–1.37), adherents to MADP (HR: 1.15 95%CI: 0.75–1.75), or heavy drinkers (HR: 0.92; 95%CI: 0.53–1.58), compared with non-drinkers. Conclusions: In a high cardiovascular risk adult population, a Mediterranean alcohol consumption pattern (low to moderate red wine consumption) was not associated with an increased incidence of AF.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/73641||ISSN:||0195-668X||Source:||European Heart Journal [ISSN 0195-668X], v. 37 sup. 1, p. 1347, Abstract P6441, (Agosto 2016)|
