Case Study
The article presents a case study about a 28-year-old man suffering from ventricular noncompaction syndrome with progressive dyspnea, orthopnea, and edema of the lower extremity. Noncompaction syndrome is a rare congenital form of cardiomyopathy that makes up the fetal myocardial primordium. Furthermore, patients with isolated left ventricular noncompaction are at risk for developing heart failure, ventricular arrhythmia, and embolic complications.
