Inflammatory activation following interruption of long-term cardiac resynchronization therapy

Abstract

Previous observations suggest that cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) may exert an anti-inflammatory effect. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of temporary interruption of long-term CRT on plasma concentrations of proinflammatory cytokines and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP).
