Abstract

Despite medical therapy, many patients with advanced systolic dysfunction remain highly symptomatic. In these patients the presence of a left bundle branch block on electrocardiogram indicates significant dyssynchrony of ventricular contraction. Cardiac resynchronization, by means of biventricular pacing, results in important clinical benefits. Due to the risk for malignant ventricular arrhythmias, this technology is best combined with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator.
