AIMS Current imaging techniques attempt to identify responders to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). However, because CRT response may depend upon several factors, it may be clinically more useful to identify patients for whom CRT would not be beneficial even under optimal conditions. We aimed to determine the negative predictive value of a composite echocardiographic index evaluating atrial-ventricular dyssynchrony (AV-DYS) and intraventricular dyssynchrony.
