INTRODUCTION Little is known about the septal activation pattern in patients with heart failure and left bundle branch block (LBBB-HF). METHODS AND RESULTS The right ventricular (RV) and left ventricular (LV) activation patterns of 12 patients (mean age 67 +/- 11 years) with LBBB-HF and 5 patients (mean age 45 +/- 14) with normal hearts were studied during sinus rhythm using a three-dimensional mapping system. The etiology of HF was myocardial infarction (n = 4) or idiopathic dilated… CONTINUE READING
