BACKGROUND Cardiac Resynchronization therapy (CRT) remains largely under-used in developing countries owing to the high cost of therapy. In this pilot study, we explore 'optimized' Left Ventricle Only Pacing (LVOP) as a cost effective alternative to cardiac resynchronization therapy in selected patients with heart failure. HYPOTHESIS In economically poorer patients with heart failure, left bundle branch block (LBBB) and intact AV node conduction, synchronization can be obtained using a dual… CONTINUE READING
