In a prospective study of 1012 patients above the age of 12 years, we detected 4 (0.4%) cases of left ventricular false tendon (LVFT) by echocardiography. Two patients had significant heart disease and LVFT was perhaps a chance occurrence; two others had no significant heart disease and LVFT probably had a causal association with S3 gallop in one and systolic murmur in the other. Diagnosis of LVFT may help to explain cardiac findings of uncertain origin.
