Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) has been suggested as a determinant of outcome in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, available data are inconclusive and the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of LVH on myocardial injury and clinical outcome in a large… CONTINUE READING
