Context Using biventricular pacemakers to resynchronize ventricular contraction improves outcomes of heart failure in some patients. The cost-effectiveness of cardiac resynchronization is unknown. Contribution This Markov model estimates that, compared with medical therapy, cardiac resynchronization cost about $107800 per quality-adjusted life-year saved. Cautions While the cost-effectiveness of cardiac resynchronization is in the general range of other commonly used interventions, the… CONTINUE READING
