Double-chambered left ventricle (DCLV) is a rare congenital cardiac abnormality. We retrospectively analyzed the diagnosis and treatment of a patient with DCLV who was admitted to Jiading Central Hospital of Shanghai Medical College in August 2019. The initial symptom of the 55-year-old male patient was stroke. He was preliminarily diagnosed with DCLV by echocardiography and this diagnosis was confirmed by contrast-enhanced echocardiography. Our findings indicate that contrast-enhanced echocardiography of the left heart is useful for clinical application in the clinical diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of DCLV. We also review the relevant literature for our case.
