The prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with heart failure is high, but data about the effects of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) in patients with chronic AF are scarce. In this prospective observational study of 263 consecutive patients, CRT was performed in 96 patients (37%) with chronic AF and 167 patients (63%) with sinus rhythm (SR). Echocardiographic and clinical parameters were evaluated at baseline and 3 and 12 months. Reverse left ventricular (LV) remodeling is… CONTINUE READING
