Case Study
Myocardial noncompaction is a rare type of congenital cardiomyopathy, characterized by trabecular network and deep trabecular recesses located in one or more ventricular segments. Patients generally present with cardiac failure, ventricular arrhythmias, and signs and symptoms related to systemic embolies. We presented two cases of myocardial noncompaction, one with left ventricular involvement and dysfunction, and the other with biventricular involvement and trabecular structures, causing right ventricular outflow tract stenosis which required surgical correction. These cases are remarkable as they had atypical clinical picture including presentation findings and treatment protocols.

    The article provides information on primary cardiac tumors. Surgery and autopsy reports reveal that the incidence of such tumor is 0.3% to 0.7% of all cardiac tumors, with only 25% malignant, and of these, 75% are sarcomas. Symptoms are said to be dependent upon tumor location and size and its...

    Objective: Myocardial ischemia and ventricular arrhythmias often complicate congestive heart failure. Ischemia-induced dispersion in repolarization is an important arrhythmogenic factor that might be caused by intrinsic cellular differences in response to simulated ischemia (SI) or by...
