BACKGROUND: Non-compaction of ventricular myocardium is a rare congenital cardiomyopathy characterized by the presence of an extremely thickened endocardial layer with prominent trabeculations and deep recesses in communication with ventricular chamber and determining the typical spongeous aspect. The diagnosis of non-compaction of ventricular myocardium is possible through the identification of morphological alterations by echocardiographic evaluation. Ebstein's anomaly is a rare congenital cardiac disease, defined as the significant apical displacement of the part of the tricuspid valve causing significant tricuspid regurgitation and reduction of the functional right ventricle, right atrial and right ventricular dilatation and atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. CASE REPORT: We present a case of biventricular non-compaction and Ebstein's anomaly in a 29-year-old Italian man that was referred for chest pain. Diagnosis of Ebstein's anomaly was made during a medical control for military service through an echocardiographic evaluation which left the suspicion of myocardium non-compaction. We present the cardiac image of the 2D and 3D eco, RMN, scintigraphy and ventriculaography.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Non-compaction of ventricular myocardium is a rare congenital cardiomyopathy characterized by the presence of an extremely thickened endocardial layer with prominent trabeculations and deep recesses in communication with ventricular chamber and determining the typical spongeous aspect. The diagnosis of non-compaction of ventricular myocardium is possible through the identification of morphological alterations by echocardiographic evaluation. Ebstein's anomaly is a rare congenital cardiac disease, defined as the significant apical displacement of the part of the tricuspid valve causing significant tricuspid regurgitation and reduction of the functional right ventricle, right atrial and right ventricular dilatation and atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. CASE REPORT: We present a case of biventricular non-compaction and Ebstein's anomaly in a 29-year-old Italian man that was referred for chest pain. Diagnosis of Ebstein's anomaly was made during a medical control for military service through an echocardiographic evaluation which left the suspicion of myocardium non-compaction. We present the cardiac image of the 2D and 3D eco, RMN, scintigraphy and ventriculaography.
