BACKGROUND Research is needed to explore the relative benefits of alternative electrode placements in biventricular and left ventricular (LV) pacing for heart failure with left bundle branch block (LBBB). METHODS A fast computational model of the left ventricle, running on an ordinary laptop computer, was created to simulate the spread of electrical activation over the myocardial surface, together with the resulting electrocardiogram, segmental wall motion, stroke volume, and ejection… CONTINUE READING
