AIMS Suboptimal placement, phrenic nerve stimulation, and dislodgements of left-ventricular (LV) leads are main challenges in cardiac resynchronization therapy. We investigated the handling, performance, safety, and stability for a novel 4Fr LV lead with a small side helix located proximal to the ring electrode for active fixation of the LV lead.

OBJECTIVES Atrioventricular nodal ablation (AVNA) is recommended for patients (pts) with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) having atrial fibrillation (AF) and incomplete ventricular capture (Class IIa, level B). AVNA reduces mortality and improves the New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class during intermediate term follow-up. The objectives(More)
