Left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) is characterised by prominent left ventricular trabeculae and deep inter-trabecular recesses. Although considered a distinct cardiomyopathy, prominent trabeculations may also be found in other cardiomyopathies, in athletes or during pregnancy. Clinical presentation includes heart failure symptoms, systemic embolic events, arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. Currently, LVNC diagnosis relies on imaging criteria, and clinicians face several challenges in the assessment of patients with prominent trabeculations. In this review, we summarise the available information on the role of the ECG in the diagnosis and management of LVNC.

Abstract

Left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) is characterised by prominent left ventricular trabeculae and deep inter-trabecular recesses. Although considered a distinct cardiomyopathy, prominent trabeculations may also be found in other cardiomyopathies, in athletes or during pregnancy. Clinical presentation includes heart failure symptoms, systemic embolic events, arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. Currently, LVNC diagnosis relies on imaging criteria, and clinicians face several challenges in the assessment of patients with prominent trabeculations. In this review, we summarise the available information on the role of the ECG in the diagnosis and management of LVNC.
