Left ventricular false tendon in a structure with unknown physiology. It was first described by Turner. It has been implicated
in origin of innocent murmur and some form of ventricular tachycardia but the significance has not been proven beyond
doubt. During echocardiography the false tendon may be misleading many times. Here we present such a case where the
false tendon really created a false impression to begin with.
Key words: Aortic regurgitation, False tendon, Hyperechogenic, Left ventricle, Interventricular septum.
