Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging to Diagnose Ebstein’s Anomaly Associated with Left Ventricular Non-Compaction - Abstract
We hereby present the case of a 47-year old female who was admitted to our outpatient clinic to perform cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) because of unusual texture of the myocardium and tricuspid valve regurgitation in echocardiography. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging revealed not only non-compaction cardiomyopathy of the left ventricle but also Ebstein´s anomaly in this patient. Isolated non-compaction cardiomyopathy as well as Ebstein´s anomaly is a rare condition and the combination of both is seldom seen. However, both entities have an impact on the patient´s life. This case report in combination with high quality CMR pictures underlines that CMR is a modern imaging technique, which further improves diagnosis of rare cardiac conditions and thereby helps establishing the necessary therapy.
