Can left ventricular function recover following Bentall procedure in a
patient with concomitant noncompacted left ventricular myocardium?
We report a rare case of successful left ventricular restoration of left
ventricular hypertrabeculation/noncompaction (LVHT) after Bentall
procedure in a patient with severe aortic regurgitation (AR) and aortic
root aneurysm. At 1-year follow-up, he remained well with
echocardiography showing the improved contractility of the noncompacted
left ventricle. This case report emphasize that timely surgical
correction of severe AR may also lead to improvement of systolic
dysfunction along with concomitant LVHT.
