BACKGROUND Whether patients with right bundle branch block (RBBB) benefit from cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is unclear. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to systematically review the published data from randomized clinical trials of CRT on the outcomes in patients with baseline RBBB. METHODS Randomized controlled trials of CRT in heart failure and left ventricular systolic dysfunction were identified from MEDLINE (1950-2010), EMBASE (1980-2010, week 45), Cochrane Controlled… CONTINUE READING
