AIMS On the basis of the current knowledge, cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) cannot be recommended as a first-line treatment for patients with severely symptomatic permanent atrial fibrillation undergoing atrioventricular (AV) junction ablation. We examined whether CRT was superior to conventional right ventricular (RV) pacing in reducing heart failure (HF) events. METHODS AND RESULTS In this prospective, multi-centre study, we randomly assigned 186 patients, in whom AV junction… CONTINUE READING
