In this issue of the Journal, Kim et al. report on the acute effects of right ventricular (RV) apical pacing on left ventricular (LV) synchrony and function and left atrial dynamics and filling pressures in patients with preserved LV ejection fraction (EF) needing chronic ventricular pacing. Pacing-induced LV dyssynchrony resulted in reduced mitral Em(More)
Heart failure with normal ejection fraction (HFNEF), previously known as diastolic heart failure (HF), is defined as a syndrome of HF with normal or near normal ejection fraction (≥ 50%) and evidence of abnormal left ventricular (LV) diastolic function. It represents about 50% of patients diagnosed with HF. HFNEF is not a benign disease as it carries a(More)
