A combination of left ventricular noncompaction and double orifice mitral valve.

Wang XX, Song ZZ - Cardiovasc Ultrasound (2009)

Bottom Line: The left ventricle was mildly dilatated and the left ventricular wall was thickened, especially at the apex and anterolateral wall, and appeared sponge-like.There were numerous, excessively prominent trabeculations associated with intertrabecular recesses.Although the coexistence of NVM and DOMV could be a coincidence, we believe that both defects were probably caused by a developmental arrest of the left ventricular myocardium in the present case.

ABSTRACT
A 24-year-old woman admitted with mild chest distress associated with activity without chest complaint for twenty days. Two orifices were visible at the level of the mitral valve with a transthoracic short-axis view of the two-dimensional and three-dimensional echocardiography. The left ventricle was mildly dilatated and the left ventricular wall was thickened, especially at the apex and anterolateral wall, and appeared sponge-like. There were numerous, excessively prominent trabeculations associated with intertrabecular recesses. Although the coexistence of NVM and DOMV could be a coincidence, we believe that both defects were probably caused by a developmental arrest of the left ventricular myocardium in the present case.

Figure 1: Parasternal short-axis view shows double-orifice mitral valve by two-dimensional echocardiography.

Mentions: Two orifices were visible at the level of the mitral valve with a transthoracic short-axis view of the two-dimensional and three-dimensional echocardiography (Figure 1 and 2). A mild mitral regurgitation of both orifices was obtained. The left ventricle was mildly dilatated and the left ventricular wall was thickened, especially at the apex and anterolateral wall, and appeared sponge-like. There were numerous, excessively prominent trabeculations associated with intertrabecular recesses (Figure 3). The color flow entered into the intertrabecular recesses. We diagnosed noncompaction of the left ventricular myocardium.
