Experimental Study. Time intervals are measured in reference to the electrocardiogram using the beginning of the QRS complex and the peak systolic velocity recorded in selected regions of interest on basal and mid segments of opposing walls wherever the maximal systolic velocity is found to be stable.

Left bundle branch block and echocardiography in the era of CRT SpringerLink

J Cardiovasc Electro-physiol, 18 , pp. Mechanical dyssynchrony assessed by speckle tracking imaging as a reliable predictor of acute and chronic response to cardiac resynchronization therapy. LV end-systolic volume, e: Novel speckle-tracking radial strain from routine black-and-white echocardiographic images to quantify dyssynchrony and predict response to cardiac resynchronization therapy.. In this study follow-up was planned for one year with clinical response parameters and evaluation of left ventricular reverse remodeling, it will also include a comparison of dyssynchrony measurements using conventional echocardiographic methods.

The prognostic significance of bundle branch block in high-risk chronic stable vascular disease patients: We classified M-mode septum images into 10 patterns and septal strain pattern into two patterns. Prevalence and prognostic impact of bundle branch block in patients with heart failure: Usefulness of three-dimensional speckle tracking strain to quantify dyssynchrony and the site of latest mechanical activation..

Left bundle branch block and echocardiography in the era of CRT

However, data about the impact of different pacing sites on LV function in intact myocardium and myocardium under ischemia is scarce.

Editor en Jefe Dr. Descargar PDF. Because activation imaging by 3-dimensional speckle tracking can visualize similar U-shaped propagation images to those by 3-dimensional voltage mapping systems, it is hoped that this method will contribute to further research.

Characteristics of heart failure patients associated with good and poor response to cardiac resynchronization therapy: AV delays, as mentioned at the methodology, were not modified between the different pacing configurations.

Echocardiography for cardiac resynchronization therapy: Pacing was unipolar with an indifferent electrode positioned in between the intercostal muscles.

However, intraventricular discoordination between the septum and free wall is also a key to the response to CRT.

This was considered essential, since in our previous research works we managed to demonstrate that after LAD ligation, pacing inside the infarcted area deteriorated the LV function as compared to pacing in sites away from this area [ 16 , 36 ].

When the right ventricle and the septum are activated before the left ventricle, the septum is pulled away from the lateral wall of the left ventricle, which ends up contracting late, at a time when the septum is shifted to the opposite direction. Statistical analysis was performed on absolute values, and each experiment served as its own control.

Naccarelli a , Mario D. These harmful effects are produced, mostly due to the alteration of the normal conduction pathway. To avoid endovascular thrombus formation, a IU heparin bolus was administered. Impact of right ventricular contractility on left ventricular dyssynchrony in patients with chronic systolic heart failure..

Reliable identification of dyssynchrony could allow us to better predict the favorable response of an individual patient to CRT and therefore offer this procedure to those individuals most likely to benefit. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.
