Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy In Patients With Heart Failure: Mechanistic Insights From Cardiac MRI And Electroanatomical Mapping

2020-03-30 04:41:54 | BioPortfolio


Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy (CRT) is a specialist pacemaker procedure that aims to improve the efficiency of the heartbeat. This treatment is used routinely in patients with heart failure and a delay in electrical conduction across the heart seen on the surface ECG (heart tracing). The investigators aim to assess acute response to CRT and compare different methods of delivering CRT using hemodynamic data from invasive dP/dTmax and electroanatomical data from either invasive mapping or non-invasive body surface mapping.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A work that reports on the results of a clinical study in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).

Work consisting of a controlled study executed by several cooperating institutions.

A study that compares a group of participants receiving an intervention with a similar group from the past who did not.

First-released version of study results in a series of data collection efforts used for the purpose of generating further interest in and or funding of a research study.

Statistical models used in survival analysis that assert that the effect of the study factors on the hazard rate in the study population is multiplicative and does not change over time.
