Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Left ventricular hypertrabeculation/noncompaction is associated with various neuromuscular and other rare genetic disorders. In a 53-year-old man with a Turner mosaic karyotype, regression of left ventricular hypertrabeculation/noncompaction was documented by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and echocardiography after 7 years. During that time, coronary 3-vessel disease and severe left ventricular dys function developed, necessitating coronary bypass surgery. Postoperatively, left ventricular systolic function recovered to an ejection fraction of 40%. The patient died suddenly 6 months postoperatively. In conclusion, the disappearance of left ventricular hypertrabeculation/noncompaction was most likely due to scar formation.
