Study
  • Condition: Patients With Non-Ischemic Cardiomyopathy Using Left Bundle Branch Pacing (LBBP)
  • Journal: JACC. Clinical electrophysiology
  • Treatment Used: Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)
  • Number of Patients: 63
  • Published —
This study assessed the possibility and effectiveness of left bundle branch pacing (LBBP) using an intraseptal technique to deliver cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) in patients with left bundle branch block (LBBB) and non-ischemic cardiomyopathy.
Latest Advance
Study
  • Condition: Patients With Persistent Atrial Fibrillation and Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator (ICD) Therapy
