Pressure–volume measurements by conductance catheter during cardiac resynchronization therapy

Show Summary Details

Preview

Pressure–volume measurements by conductance catheter enable assessment of systolic and diastolic left ventricular function and quantification of mechanical dyssynchrony in a continuous and on-line fashion. The present review gives an overview of the (potential) applications of this methodology in relation to cardiac resynchronization therapy.
