FETAL AND NEONATAL PRESENTATION OF NON-COMPACTED VENTRICULAR

Noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium (NCVM) is a rare cardiomyopathy characterized by
numerous, prominent trabeculations and deep intertrabecular recesses caused by arrest in myocardial embryogenesis.
This study reviews our experience with neonatal and fetal NCVM. In contrast to the past reports of fetal and
neonatal NCVM, all pts in this group improved, and survived infancy.
