Patients with left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) have an increased risk for life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. The benefit from implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) in these patients has been investigated only in small series. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to analyze the clinical outcome of a larger population of patients with LVNC who were treated with an ICD.
