Materials and methods. A clinical case of noncompact left ventricular cardiomyopathy in a 21-year-old man with clinical manifestations of arrhythmias and heart failure is presented. Echocardiography and heart MRI were included in the examination. Results and conclusions. The survey revealed signs of non-compact myocardium. After successful radiofrequency ablation, regression of the clinical manifestations was obtained. Thus, for the diagnosis of "non-compact myocardium" it is advisable to use at least 2 instrumental methods of examination (echocardiography, multispiral computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging), which complement each other.
