Background Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is frequently associated with ST depression (STD) on the electrocardiogram (ECG), a so-called strain pattern. Although STD is a well-established adverse prognosticator in non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS), the relative prognostic importance of LVH and associated STD has not been elucidated.
