Ventricular noncompaction

Arun Gopi, Placid Sebastian, C D Ramakrishna
Isolated ventricular noncompaction (IVNC) is an unclassified cardiomyopathy characterized by prominent intraventricular trabeculations separated by deep intertrabecular recesses. Although microvascular dysfunction is known, myocardial infarction is rare and usually seen as a consequence of coincidental coronary artery disease. We report the case of a 19-year-old male patient who presented to us with symptoms and signs of heart failure. Echocardiography revealed IVNC with severe left ventricular dysfunction...

In this report, we present the case of a patient with biventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy, Ebstein anomaly, and a left atrial mass who required emergent placement of a left ventricular assist device. The noncompaction cardiomyopathy complicated the left ventricular assist device implantation procedure because the thickened, trabeculated myocardium made it difficult to place the inflow cannula. We discuss our perioperative management strategy, in which transesophageal echocardiography was used, to help the surgical team identify the proper cannula placement and provide a bridge to transplantation...

We report a case of cyst was initially labeled as left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy. An accurate diagnosis is essential to establish the most effective treatment strategy. In particular, echocardiographic examination assists in identifying the correct diagnosis. In this case, two-dimensional and three-dimensional echocardiography and computed tomography were used for definitive diagnosis of cardiac hydatid cyst.

Isolated left ventricular noncompaction is either a distinct cardiomyopathy or a morphologic trait shared by several different types of cardiomyopathies. Although there is no current gold standard for its diagnosis, cardiac imaging is the most commonly accepted modality. Described is a case of left ventricular noncompaction that resolved 2 years after the initial diagnosis.

OBJECTIVE: Isolated left ventricular noncompaction (ILVNC) is a rare cardiomyopathy characterized by a prominent trabecular meshwork and deep intertrabecular recesses. The present study aimed to examine right atrial (RA) volumes, volume-based functional properties and strains by three-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography (3DSTE) in ILVNC patients. METHODS: The study group consisted of 13 patients with ILVNC (mean age: 54.6±14.1 years, six male) and 23 healthy age- and gender-matched volunteers (mean age: 50...

BACKGROUND: Noncompaction cardiomyopathy (NCCM) is considered to be the result of an arrest in the normal myocardial embryogenesis. The histological, developmental, and electrophysiological explanation of ventricular arrhythmias in NCCM is still unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the origin of premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) in NCCM and to identify any predominant arrhythmic foci. METHODS: Retrospective data from our NCCM registry including 101 patients were analyzed...

Left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) describes a ventricular wall anatomy characterized by prominent left ventricular (LV) trabeculae, a thin compacted layer, and deep intertrabecular recesses. Individual variability is extreme, and trabeculae represent a sort of individual "cardioprinting." By itself, the diagnosis of LVNC does not coincide with that of a "cardiomyopathy" because it can be observed in healthy subjects with normal LV size and function, and it can be acquired and is reversible. Rarely, LVNC is intrinsically part of a cardiomyopathy; the paradigmatic examples are infantile tafazzinopathies...

Objectives. Psychosis and left ventricular hypertrabeculation (or noncompaction) (LVHT) have not been described in the same patient. Here we report a patient with a long-term history of schizophrenia who was later diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy (dCMP) and LVHT. Case Report. A 47-year-old Caucasian male developed nondifferentiated schizophrenia at the age of 26 y. Since the age of 33 y he was regularly drinking alcohol. At the age of 47 y he developed heart failure. Transthoracic echocardiography showed an enlarged left ventricle, reduced systolic function, and surprisingly LVHT in the apical segment...

Athletic heart syndrome refers to the physiological and morphological changes that occur in a human heart after repetitive strenuous physical exercise. Examples of exercise-induced changes in the heart include increases in heart cavity dimensions, augmentation of cardiac output, and increases in heart muscle mass. These cardiac adaptations vary based on the type of exercise performed and are often referred to as sport-specific cardiac remodeling. The hemodynamic effects of endurance and strength training exercise lead to these adaptations...

The prevalence of left ventricular noncompacted myocardium (LVNC) is not clearly defined yet. The goal of this study was to prospectively assess the prevalence of LVNC in a population of patients assessed for cardiovascular disease and to analyze the coincidence between observers using the echocardiographic criteria for diagnosis of LVNC. We included patients prospectively during a 1-year period. To analyze the concordance between different observers, we performed a blind analysis of 50 patients between 7 operators to calculate Kappa index for each criteria...

INTRODUCTION: Left-ventricular hypertrabeculation/noncompaction (LVHT) is a rare myocardial abnormality of the distal left ventricular myocardium, which may be complicated by functional abnormalities such as heart failure, arrhythmias, or thrombus formation. AREA COVERED: This review discusses unsolved issues concerning LVHT, such as the lack of uniformly accepted diagnostic criteria, the unclear pathogenesis of LVHT, the relevance of clinical manifestations of LVHT as prognostic factors, the unclear association between LVHT and neuromuscular disorders, and the question which therapy LVHT patients should receive...

Left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy (LVNC) is a rare hereditary cardiomyopathy characterized by the formation of an outer compacted and inner noncompacted layer of the myocardium. The latter is characterized by prominent trabeculations and deep intertrabecular recesses and is functionally inferior to the compacted myocardium. As there is no specific treatment for patients with LVNC who develop heart failure, the management of these patients is limited and many patients progress to advanced stages of the disease...
