Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An 87-year-old man with heart failure was admitted to our hospital. A transthoracic echocardiography showed diffuse mild left ventricular (LV) hypokinesis and LV noncompaction at the apex. A three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography confirmed a trabecular meshwork. After treatment for heart failure, LV end-systolic dimension decreased and trabeculae seemed to converge and became obscure in end-systole. This is a rare case suggesting mechanism of obscured LV noncompaction after treatment for heart failure.
