Background: Left ventricular false tendon (LVFT) is a fibromuscular band crossing the left ventricular cavity. And Chiari's network (CN) is a highly mobile, mesh-like, echogenic structure in right atrium. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the coexistence of LVFT in patients with CN. CN patients were examined with live/real-time three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) for visualization of LVFT.
