Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) constitutes an established way of treatment for patients suffering from severe heart failure. However, this technologically based and expensive mode of therapy may not be effective for a substantial number of individuals. Recent research and advanced echocardiographic modalities have provided new insight on the proper patient selection, lead implantation, optimization and reasons for non-response. Based on this evidence, an overall assessment of… CONTINUE READING
