Answer

T-wave inversion and ST-segment depression in leads with predominantly positive QRS complexes are common. ST depression exceeding 0.3 mV in patients with aortic stenosis indicates LV strain and suggests severe LVH. Occasionally, a septal pseudoinfarct pattern can be seen. Left atrial enlargement with a preterminal negative p wave in lead V1 is noted in 80% of cases of severe isolated aortic stenosis. The presence of left atrial enlargement suggests an associated mitral valve process.
