The disorder results from intrauterine arrest of compaction of the loose interwoven meshwork of the fetal myocardial primordium and subsequent persistence of deep trabecular recesses in the myocardial wall. The classical clinical presentation is a triad of heart failure, arrhythmias, and embolic events from mural thrombi. ILVNC has been associated with several autosomal… CONTINUE READING
