Left ventricular noncompaction

Left ventricular dysfunction is a heart muscle disorder that occurs when the lower left chamber of the heart, which helps the heart pump blood, does not develop properly. The cardiac muscle in the left ventricle is thick and spongy rather than smooth and firm. For the heart to pump blood properly, cardiac muscle must contract and relax completely. Some people with left ventricular noncompaction have no signs at all; others have heart disease that can lead to sudden cardiac death. Heart failure affects approximately two-thirds of people with left ventricular noncompaction.
