[BIVENTRICULAR PACING - A NEW TREATMENT OPTION IN CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE]

BŐHM Ádám

[Cardiac resynchronisation therapy with biventricular pacing is a new treatment option in patients with moderate-to-advanced heart failure and left bundle branch block. Cardiac resynchronisation therapy leads to improved haemodynamics at diminished energy cost. Beneficial effects include reverse remodelling resulting in decreased heart size and ventricular volumes, improved ejection fraction and decreased functional mitral regurgitation. The haemodynamic improvements are associated with a... tovább »
