Abstract

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.
