BACKGROUND Congestive heart failure negatively impacts the prognosis in patients after cardiac surgery. The aim of our study was to assess the value of targeted cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) within 72 hours after cardiac surgery in patients with mechanical dyssynchrony, who had an ejection fraction ≤ 35%, QRS ≥150 ms or between 120 and 150 ms. METHODS A prospective randomized trial based on three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) and optimized sequential dual-chamber (DDD… CONTINUE READING
