We prospectively assessed whether the Piga’s criterion for left ventricle non-compaction (LVNC) (NC/C ratio threshold of >2.5) had a prognostic role for adverse cardiovascular outcomes in thalassemia intermedia patients. We found out that patients with Piga’s positive criterion had a significant higher risk of developing cardiac complications globally considered and arrhythmias.
