Data are presented as median (25th–75th percentile) or , %. AMI: acute myocardial infarction; LBBB: left bundle branch block; LVH: left ventricular hypertrophy; CAD: coronary artery disease. History of CAD included the history of myocardial infarction, cardiac revascularization, or former diagnosis of coronary artery disease.
