AIMS Benefits of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) are well known for heart failure; however, some patients might experience complications related to the coronary sinus (CS) lead (high pacing threshold, phrenic nerve stimulation, and dislodgment) with unfavourable impact on quality of life, costs, and management. Lead stability is one of the most common unmet needs for CRT procedures. METHODS AND RESULTS Recently, new model Medtronic 20066 Attain Stability(®) (Maastricht, The… CONTINUE READING
