Abstract

The isolated left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) is an increasingly commonly diagnosed myocardial disorder resulting from a defective morphogenesis of the endomyocardium. This is associated with high rates of thromboembolism, cardiac failure, and cardiac arrhythmia. The report describes 3 cases of LVNC, presenting with different clinical pictures.
