An 80-year-old woman was referred for transcatheter aortic valve implantation for correction of aortic stenosis. An echocardiogram at the author's institution revealed severe hypertrophy of the left ventricle with deep recesses into the myocardium and hypokinesis involving the left ventricular apex. In addition, there was subaortic stenosis secondary to a muscular ridge. The aortic valve was only mildly stenotic. In this Cardiology Grand Rounds, the authors present a rare case of ventricular noncompaction and review the literature on this subject and its association with other cardiac abnormalities.
