  • AIMS Left-ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) is characterized by excessive and prominent left-ventricular (LV) trabeculations and may be associated with systolic dysfunction in advanced disease. [...] Key Method All underwent clinical examination, electrocardiography, and 2-D echocardiography. The number of patients fulfilling diagnostic criteria for LVNC was retrospectively determined using three published definitions. Results were compared with 60 prospectively evaluated normal controls (age 35.7 +/- 13.5…Expand Abstract
