Isolated left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) is a rare cardiomyopathy characterized by excessive and prominent trabeculations associated with deep recesses that communicate with the ventricular cavity. Determining the natural history of this condition has been hampered by differences in clinical features and prognosis in published series, which are partly the result of differing diagnostic criteria and the lack of management guidelines. This work aims to contribute to the characterization of isolated LVNC by analyzing an affected population in terms of clinical presentation, diagnosis, risk stratification, treatment and follow-up. We also discuss the most relevant data from the literature concerning this cardiomyopathy.
