Introduction Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has emerged as an established therapy for congestive heart failure (CHF). However, up to 30% of patients fail to respond to CRT despite prolonged QRS and some other patients respond to CRT despite thin QRS. The aim of this study was to define the prevalence of mechanical (atrioventricular, interventricular and intraventricular) dissynchrony in heart failure patients with different QRS durations. Methods A total of 46 patients with heart… CONTINUE READING
