AIMS To investigate the influence of interlead distance and lead positioning on success of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) in patients with advanced chronic heart failure and electrical dyssynchrony. Despite application of established selection criteria, 20-40% of the patients do not respond to CRT. METHODS AND RESULTS We examined consecutive patients in whom CRT was implanted. Response to CRT was defined as a decrease in the left ventricular end-systolic volume >or=10% after 6 months… CONTINUE READING
