Noncompaction of the left ventricular myocardium (LVNC) is a new clinical entity firstly described by Engberding and Bender in 1984. LVNC is characterized by the presence of numerous prominent trabeculations and deep intertrabecular recesses within the left ventricle. Recently, it has been demonstrated by two-dimensional (2D) speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE), that left ventricular (LV) basal and LV apical rotations are in the same direction resulting in the near absence of LV twist in LVNC patients, which was called as "LV solid/rigid body rotation." Three-dimensional (3D)-STE has just been introduced, and found to be an accurate method for the evaluation of LV rotation mechanics. The aim of this report was to confirm LV "rigid body rotation" in an LVNC patient by 3D-STE. (Echocardiography 2012;**: E1-E4).
