OBJECTIVE To determine the left ventricular (LV) activation pattern in patients with chronic heart failure and left bundle branch block (LBBB) on ECG. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Tertiary cardiology referral centre in Hong Kong. PATIENTS Seven patients with LV ejection fraction < 35% and typical LBBB on ECG with QRS duration > or = 130 ms were recruited. Five of them had non-ischaemic dilated cardiomyopathy. METHODS Non-contact mapping was used to investigate the LV global… CONTINUE READING
