Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), a left-sided ventricular pacing therapy for highly symptomatic heart failure (HF) patients with ventricular conduction delay, is indicated in patients with preserved sinus rhythm (SR) (1). Few data are available on whether CRT might benefit patients with chronic atrial fibrillation (AF) after atrioventricular (AV) junction ablation. The study by Puggioni et al. (2) in this issue of the Journal helps to define the potential role of CRT in a pacemaker… CONTINUE READING
