Noncompaction of the left ventricular myocardium or "Spongy myocardium" is a rare form of congenital cardiomyopathy in which the left ventricular wall fails to become flattened during the first trimester of embryonic development.
The largest deposits occur in the subepicardial regions, particularly in areas adjacent to the coronary arteries; in the right ventricular and right atrial walls; in the atrial septum; less frequently in the left atrial wall; commonly in areas of scarring in the left ventricular free wall; and extremely rarely in the ventricular septum (1-3).
