    Abstract

    Double-chambered ventricle is a rare congenital cardiac abnormality, most commonly affecting the right ventricle. Here, we report a case of an incidental diagnosis of this condition affecting the left ventricle (LV), which is found much less frequently, and the use of contrast echocardiography in its evaluation. The addition of computed tomography (CT), highlighting the blood supply of both chambers by the left anterior descending (LAD) artery allowed us to confirm the diagnosis. Mini-Abstract We report a case of the rarely encountered double-chambered left ventricle and the use of contrast echocardiography and computed tomography in its diagnosis.
