Abstract

Background: Isolated ventricular noncompaction (IVNC) is a serious cardiomyopathy with a generally poor prognosis. It is characterized by the presence of prominent ventricular myocardial trabeculations and deep intertrabecular recesses, in the absence of other structural heart defects, This cardiomyopathy is usually associated with ventricular dysfunction, thromboembolic events, and rhythm problems.
