Abstract

Echocardiography is playing an increasing role in patient selection for cardiac resychronization therapy (CRT). The most frequently used techniques for evaluating inter- and intraventricular dyssynchrony are standard echocardiography and tissue Doppler imaging (TDI). Whether these techniques give concordant results is unknown. We studied 44 patients with a left ventricular ejection fraction of ≤0.35. Dyssynchrony was evaluated by standard echocardiography using the techniques described in the CARE-HF trial (interventricular mechanical delay and delayed motion of the posterior wall)....
