Cardiac resynchronization therapy emerged more than two decades ago as a useful form of device therapy for patients with heart failure and associated abnormal ventricular conduction, as indicated by a wide QRS complex. In this book, the Authors present insights into how to achieve the greatest benefits with CRT therapy to improve long-term outcomes.
For those who are interested in learning more about CRT, this is a great instrument to get introduced to the practice and theory and it is highly recommended for anyone who does not know much about CRT and would like to learn more. The Authors involved in this work are the back-bone of international research in the field. This book is meant to be a summary of the latest developments in the management of patients with heart failure. Therefore, this is an indispensable reference guide useful to fellows and specialists in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology.
