Incidence of the coexistence of left ventricular false tendons and premature ventricular contractions in apparently healthy subjects.

The incidence of the coexistence of left ventricular false tendons and premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) was evaluated prospectively. Over 14 months, left ventricular false tendons were found in 71 (6.4%) of 1117 consecutive patients examined echocardiographically. Two types of false tendons were observed: longitudinal, from the ventricular septum… (More)
