Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Optimization: A Comprehensive Approach.

Asim Katbeh, Guy Van Camp, Emanuele Barbato, Maurizio Galderisi, Bruno Trimarco, Jozef Bartunek, Marc Vanderheyden, Martin Penicka,

Since the first report on biventricular pacing in 1994, cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has become standard for patients with advanced heart failure (HF) and ventricular conduction delay. CRT improves myocardial function by resynchronizing myocardial contraction, which results in reverse left ventricular remodeling and improves symptoms and clinical outcomes. Despite the ...
