Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) offers proven benefit to patients with refractory symptomatic chronic heart failure (New York Heart Association Class III or IV), severe left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction (LV ejection fraction <35%), and LV dyssynchrony (QRS width >120 ms). Cardiac resynchronization therapy has the potential to improve survival and functional capacity, reduce hospital admissions, and promote LV reverse remodelling. Although difficult to truly evaluate, up to 30… CONTINUE READING
