Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The investigators describe 35-year-old monozygotic twins who presented 6 months apart with heart failure. In conclusion, this is the first report of adult monozygotic twins with isolated left ventricular noncompaction who presented with similar clinical and echocardiographic features and abnormal twist mechanics.
