[Femoral vein guidance for pipe-shaped coronary sinus cannulation and epicardial left ventricular lead placement using left subclavian vein approach].

Abstract

Variations in coronary sinus (CS) anatomy can make subclavian vein approach dif?cult or even impossible for LV lead delivery. A combination of interventional and electrophysiological methods is therefore the state of art technique for implantation of LV leads. A 52 year-old male patient with ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (LVEF: 15%, QRS: 160 msec) who was… (More)
