Abstract

RENILLA, Alfredo et al. Isolated left ventricular non-compaction associated with Ebstein's anomaly: Multimodality non-invasive imaging for the assessment of congenital heart disease. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2013, vol.83, n.2, pp.100-103. ISSN 1665-1731.  https://doi.org/10.1016/j.acmx.2013.03.003.

To establish the etiology of heart failure in patients with congenital heart disease can be challenging. Multiple concomitant anomalies that can be missed after an initial diagnosis could be seen in these patients. In patients with congenital heart disease, a more accurate evaluation of cardiac morphology and left ventricular systolic function could be evaluated by recent non-invasive cardiac imaging techniques. We present a rare case where multimodal cardiac imaging was useful to establish the final diagnosis of left ventricular non-compaction associated with Ebstein's anomaly.
