Influence of the atrio-ventricular delay optimization on the intra left ventricular delay in cardiac resynchronization therapy


BACKGROUND Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) leads to a reduction of left-ventricular dyssynchrony and an acute and sustained hemodynamic improvement in patients with chronic heart failure. Furthermore, an optimized AV-delay leads to an improved myocardial performance in pacemaker patients. The focus of this study is to investigate the acute effect of… (More)
