Assessment of left ventricular non-compaction
in adults: side-by-side comparison of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging with echocardiography.
The left ventricular non-compaction
is an unclassified cardiomyopathy, which can be a part of other syndromes or can be found as an isolated disorder.
A transthoracic echocardiogram with contrast media demonstrated a hypokinetic and markedly dilated left ventricle with a double-layer arrangement consisting of a thin epicardial muscle layer and a thick endocardium (Figure 1) consisting of multiple trabeculae and deep recesses (Figure 2), suggestive of Left Ventricular Non-Compaction (LVNC).
This is the first case of left ventricular non-compaction cardiomyopathy reported in Puerto Rico.
