Question: What is an uncompacted cardiomyopathy? Pedro (Tudela).
Answer: Uncompacted cardiomyopathy is a relatively rare form of heart disease. It consists in that the heart muscle is not just formed normally and is placed in the form of separate and poorly connected sheets. The usual consequence is that the heart tends to be less strong than normal. Patients with this disorder often tire easily and even develop heart failure. The prognosis is quite variable for each patient.
