ST depression: ? old EKG for comparison? EVRA not the cause. Moderate ST depression is a nonspecific finding &could be caused by old viral infection. Coronary artery disease would be unlikely at your age. Right axis deviation is common in young people. Abnormal QRS- T angle is nonspecific T wave abnormality. The cardiologist will examine your heart, order echocardiogram and lipid panel. I'm optimistic about you.
