Scant knowledge exists regarding the significance of either additional ST depression in the presence of baseline depression or new stress-induced ST depression in patients with left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy. Accordingly, the purpose of this investigation is to determine whether the appearance and/or severity of ST abnormalities during exercise stress testing can accurately predict the prevalence of ischemic burden as measured by quantitative technetium-99m-sestamibi single-photon emission computed tomographic imaging in patients with LV hypertrophy. The results show that the presence of exercise ST-segment depression, as well as its magnitude, are not accurate predictors for identifying patients with coronary artery disease in the presence of electrocardiographic criteria for LV hypertrophy.
