Abstract

Isolated noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium is an uncommon disorder characterized by an excessively prominent trabecular meshwork seen in the early period of embryogenesis. The clinical presentation of noncompaction includes a high prevalence of heart failure, thromboembolic events and arrhythmias. Echocardiography is the procedure of choice for the diagnosis of noncompaction. We report two demonstrative patients with isolated noncompaction of the left ventricular myocardium and review the available related literature.
