Cardiac resynchronization therapy with defibrillator (CRT-D) can improve heart function in certain patients with non-left bundle branch block (non-LBBB)
There are three types of conduction disorders namely left bundle branch block (LBBB), right bundle branch block (RBBB) and non-specific intraventricular conduction delay (NICD). The latter two are collectively referred to as non-left bundle branch block (non-LBBB)
Although non-LBBB patients with symptoms of heart failure can be given CRT-D, there is not enough evidence about its effectiveness. However, this new study proves that CRT-D can improve heart function
Cardiac resynchronization therapy with defibrillator (CRT-D) can help certain patients with non-left bundle branch block (non-LBBB) with heart failure if traditional, implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) fails according to a recent study led by Hiro Kawata, MD, PhD, of the Oregon Heart and Vascular Institute in Springfield.
