OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to determine if biomarkers of subclinical myocardial injury and hemodynamic stress identify asymptomatic individuals with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) at higher risk for heart failure (HF) and death. BACKGROUND The interaction between LVH, low but detectable cardiac troponin T (cTnT), and elevated N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) on cardiovascular (CV) outcomes in the general population is unknown.
