New Left Ventricular Noncompaction (LVNC) Information Sheet Online

Our LVNC information sheet is the latest addition to our genetic heart disease series for patients and families.

The new information sheet provides key information on left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC), a genetic heart disease which is less well recognised compared to other cardiomyopathies. LVNC is a rare disease, caused by a gene fault affecting the muscle of the left ventricle during development.  Symptoms can vary widely, with some people having no symptoms while others may experience shortness of breath, palpitations, chest pain, dizziness and/or fainting. Occasionally the disease can cause heart failure, stroke and sudden death.
