Abstract

Isolated left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC), also known as left ventricular hypertrabeculation, is characterized by the presence of extensive myocardial trabeculation and deep intertrabecular recesses that communicate with the left ventricular cavity. It potentially leads to progressive cardiac failure, thromboembolism, and malignant cardiac arrhythmias. We describe a case of a heart failure patient with diagnostic criteria of LVNC that became less clear after standard heart failure treatment
