BACKGROUND: The appearance of a discrete upward deflection of the ST segment, termed the ST hump sign during exercise testing has been associated with resting hypertension and exaggerated blood pressure response to exercise. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the correlation between the presence of hump sign during exercise testing with coexisting impaired diastolic function of the left ventricle (LV) at these patients. METHODS: We formed a cohort of 237 nonconsecutive patients (140 males, 41 +/- 5 ...Expand abstract
