Left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) is a rare congenital disorder characterized by two layered myocardium; trabeculated (non-compacted) and a non-trabeculated (compacted). LVNC is increasingly being recognized due to better imaging technology as a cause for heart failure and sudden cardiac death; however, data on clinical and imaging characteristics remains limited.
