Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a standard treatment for selected patients with chronic heart failure (HF). However, up to 30-50% of patients still do not respond to CRT.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Heart rhythm
The aim of the study was to confirm the value of the VALID-cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) risk score in predicting outcome and to assess its association with clinical response (CR) in an unse...
There are some controversial reports related to the pro-arrhythmic or anti-arrhythmic potential of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and little is known about the relationship between ventricula...
Limited data is available on the effect of severe chronic kidney disease (CKD) on the response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) as these patients are often excluded from trials. We therefore...
The aim of this study was to investigate the predictors of long-term clinical outcome of heart failure (HF) patients who survived first year after initiation of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)...
During cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), optimized programming of the atrioventricular (AV) delay and ventricular-to-ventricular (VV) interval can lead to improved hemodynamics, symptomatic res...
The Sensor Optimization of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) Response (SOCR) Study is a multicenter, prospective, non-randomized acute feasibility study that is being conducted to de...
The purpose of the study is to assess prospectively at 6 months the percentage of responder patients implanted with a Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT-D) device and a Quartet Left Ve...
The purpose of this study is to gather information on how doctors program particular settings on cardiac resynchronization therapy implantable cardiac defibrillators (CRT-Ds), to analyze h...
Left ventricular (LV) lead position has crucial impact on cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) success. This study will compare fluoroscopy and myocardial deformation imaging for optima...
The aim of this study is to investigate if imaging guided optimal left ventricular (LV) lead placement improves the response rate to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Consecutive pa...
Types of artificial pacemakers with implantable leads to be placed at multiple intracardial sites. They are used to treat various cardiac conduction disturbances which interfere with the timing of contraction of the ventricles. They may or may not include defibrillating electrodes (IMPLANTABLE DEFIBRILLATORS) as well.
The restoration of the sequential order of contraction and relaxation of the HEART ATRIA and HEART VENTRICLES by atrio-biventricular pacing.
A form of electrophysiologic audiometry in which an analog computer is included in the circuit to average out ongoing or spontaneous brain wave activity. A characteristic pattern of response to a sound stimulus may then become evident. Evoked response audiometry is known also as electric response audiometry.
A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.
A state of elevated cardiac output due to conditions of either increased hemodynamic demand or reduced cardiac oxygen output. These conditions may include ANEMIA; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; THYROTOXICOSIS; PREGNANCY; EXERCISE; FEVER; and ANOXIA. In time, compensatory changes of the heart can lead to pathological form of high cardiac output and eventual HEART FAILURE.
