BACKGROUND Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) improves heart failure (HF) symptoms through a reduction of cardiac mechanical dyssynchrony. Mechanical dyssynchrony is currently estimated by electrical dyssynchrony (QRS duration). It is known that electrical and mechanical dyssynchrony are not well correlated in HF patients. However, there is limited information about whether this relationship might be influenced by the underlying cardiomyopathy. METHODS Doppler echocardiography was… CONTINUE READING
