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. We sought to determine the proportion of patients fulfilling LVNC criteria in an adult population referred to a heart failure clinic using current diagnostic criteria. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred and ninety-nine patients [age 63.5 +/- 15.9 years, 124 (62.3%) males] with LV systolic impairment were… CONTINUE READING
