AIMS To assess procedural characteristics and adjudicated procedure-related (<or=30 days) major adverse events among patients who underwent cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) implantation in the CARE-HF study. The CARE-HF study shows that CRT improves symptoms and reduces morbidity and mortality in New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III/IV chronic heart failure (CHF) patients. However, safe and proper implantation of pacing systems remains key to effective CRT delivery. METHODS AND… CONTINUE READING
