so it is saying the effects of steroids on the heart (left ventricular hypertrophy) eventually wear off, thus the heart will (in time) return to its pre-cycled size, and this happens over quite a shot period of time (237days in this example), the thing is, what is the damage done from this growing and shrinking of the heart? i've heard it can make the heart more brittle, and over time i assume that 'could' have a negative effect on the E/A ratio, any know anything more on this?

I saw a medical study talking about heart hypertrophy and while it occured, it had no effect on the heart's performance, pretty sure, i'll have to go find it.
