BACKGROUND There is still a significant proportion of patients with heart failure who fail to improve after cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). The investigators used parametric two-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography with polar plots of the amplitude and timing of left ventricular (LV) longitudinal strain to guide implantation of the LV(More)
AIMS Up to 30-45% of implanted patients are non-responders to CRT. We evaluated the role of a 'CRT team' using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and longitudinal myocardial strain to identify the target area defined as the most delayed and viable region for LV pacing. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 100 heart failure patients candidates for CRT divided into(More)
