OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to examine the impact of calculation-window duration on lifespan gain (as observed in trials) and on who gains most. BACKGROUND The landmark trials of biventricular pacing (cardiac resynchronization therapy [CRT]) typically ran for <1 device battery life, and they may therefore underestimate lifespan benefit over longer durations. METHODS We conducted a meta-analysis of biventricular pacing trials to calculate lifespan gained: first, within the duration… CONTINUE READING
