Correlation of ST-segment "hump sign" during exercise testing with impaired diastolic function of the left ventricle.

Abstract:

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.
