AIMS Despite our prior report suggesting heart failure (HF) risk reduction from cardiac resynchronization therapy with defibrillator (CRT-D) in mild HF patients with higher left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF > 30%), data on mortality benefit in this cohort are lacking. We aimed to assess long-term mortality benefit from CRT-D in mild HF patients by LVEF > 30%. METHODS AND RESULTS Among 1274 patients with mild HF and left bundle branch block enrolled in MADIT-CRT, we analysed long-term… CONTINUE READING
