OBJECTIVES We sought to determine whether radial left ventricular (LV) asynchrony in patients with heart failure predicts systolic function improvement with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). BACKGROUND We quantified LV wall motion by echocardiography to correlate the effects of CRT on LV systolic function with wall motion synchrony. METHODS Thirty-four patients underwent echocardiographic phase analysis of LV septal and lateral wall motion and hemodynamic testing before CRT. Phase… CONTINUE READING
