Ventricular Noncompaction

My daughter has been diagnosed with noncompaction of the apex of the left ventricle.  She has fainted and went through the tilt table test yesterday at a local hospital.    

She has been seen by a pediatric cardiologist, who is planning to share her echo at a conference of other cardiologists.  

Reading about Noncompaction does little to ease the worries that we have; however her ejection fraction and fractional shortening are within normal levels. Are there cases of noncompaction that do not result in heart failure?  He has not limited her activities or asked that she take any medication at this point.  

I have read about plasma norepinephrine levels and BNP in some of the research about syncope and noncompaction.  Could these be related to my daughter's recent problems?  Are there tests that can be done to see if these are contributing to her presyncope/syncope?

Thank you for your help!
