Myocardial disarray is a fiber distribution that deviates away from the tightly organized, parallel alignment of myocardial fibers that characterizes the normal myocardium. This coherently-organized distribution of the myofibers results in the twisting contraction of the normal left ventricle (LV). With myofiber disarray, the fibers have random directionality, either locally or globally, within the LV.
