Noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium (NVM) is a rare congenital cardiomyopathy that is characterized by multiple prominent trabeculations and deep intertrabecular recesses, and occurs due to arrest of normal embryogenesis of the endocardium and myocardium. It is also referred to as isolated left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC), because lesions are mainly in the left ventricle. The main clinical manifestations are heart failure, arrhythmia, systemic embolism, and sudden death. Systemicdoi:10.1532/hsf.1608 pmid:29272223 fatcat:nrqhahltj5cgvf5gd76f6tqlvy
