    • Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a new therapy for patients with symptomatic heart failure (HF) resulting from systolic dysfunction. Numerous clinical investigations have demonstrated that in selected patients with ventricular dyssynchrony, CRT improved left ventricular function, functional status, and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). Randomized clinical trials showed that in patients already on optimal medical therapy, CRT reduced morbidity and all-cause mortality...

    • Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a treatment option in patients with severe heart failure and left bundle-branch block (LBBB). This study evaluated the effects of 4 and 13 mo of CRT on myocardial oxygen consumption (MVO2) and cardiac efficiency as compared with mild heart failure patients without LBBB. Methods: Sixteen patients with severe heart failure and LBBBduetoidiopathiccardiomyopathywerestudiedatbaseline andafter 4 and after 13 moof therapy.Thirteen patients withmild heart failure without LBBB served as a comparison group...

    • Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a novel and effective therapy for patients with heart failure. The aim of CRT is to improve the heart's pumping efficiency by the resynchronization of the chambers. Electrical dyssynchrony shows itself as bundle branch block with prolongation of QRS >120 ms...

    • Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an established treatment for symptomatic patients with heart failure, a prolonged QRS duration, and impaired left ventricular (LV) function. Identification of 'responders' and 'non-responders' to CRT has attracted considerable attention. The response to CRT can be measured in terms of symptomatic response or clinical outcome, or both...

    • Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an established treatment for patients with symptomatic heart failure, severely impaired left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction and a wide (> 120 ms) complex...
