Apical rocking is predictive of response to cardiac resynchronization therapy

Abstract

Identification of patients who will benefit from cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is challenging. “Apical rocking” is frequently observed in asynchronously contracting ventricles and small studies suggested that it may predict CRT response. We assessed the predictive value of LV apical rocking on echocardiographic and clinical response to CRT in a… (More)
