Association between fibrinolytic function makers and AF.

A. Tissue-type plasminogen activator and AF; B. Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 and AF. Forest plots of SMD and overall SMD with 95% CI between AF cases and controls. Black diamonds indicate the SMD, with the size of the square inversely proportional to its variance, and horizontal lines represent the 95% CI. The pooled results are indicated by the black hollow diamond. AF, atrial fibrillation; tPA, tissue-type plasminogen activator; PAI-1, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1; SMD, standardized mean difference.
