    Abstract

    In coronary artery disease (CAD), a potentially reversible factor leading to cardiac death is left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). However, LVH will only have a large impact overall in CAD if it is highly prevalent. Therefore we aimed to assess the prevalence of LVH in patients with stable, treated angina and its relationship with blood pressure (BP).
