[First experience in treatment of terminal cardiac insufficiency using multisite stimulation].

Abstract

We hypothesized that the presence of an abnormal ventricular mechanical activation sequence and/or a delayed left ventricular (LV) contraction may have adverse hemodynamic effects in congestive heart failure (CHF) and could be improved by synchronous RV-LV pacing in a multisite (MS) configuration. 8 NYHA IV CHF patients were included with a LV delay due to… (More)
