Relationship between left ventricular stimulation characteristics at implantation and echocardiographic response after 6 months of cardiac resynchronization therapy.

Abstract

AIMS Although the electrical stimulation of an ischaemic tissue adversely affects the left ventricular (LV) systolic function, the optimal stimulation site in patients with non-ischaemic cardiomyopathy has not been systematically studied. We hypothesized that the local stimulation characteristics at the time of device implantation predict the response to… (More)
