Left ventricular band has been considered a vestigial entity for quite a long time. Their incidence is quite common in our day to day practise but their real function is yet to be understood. We performed a case series of 5 patients with left ventricular band and studied the characteristics of the band along with their hemodynamic effects. The study showed that the characteristics of the band depend on the degree of left ventricular outflow obstruction and varies among people of different age groups. The ventricular band also play a role in sequestration of blood in the left ventricle and they are also involved in maintaining the geometry of the left ventricle in diseased conditions.
