PMID:  22521939     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
The rationale for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), expectations in terms of patient benefit, patient selection for CRT, the selection of a CRT pacemaker (CRT-P) versus CRT plus implantable cardioverter defibrillator (CRT-D) platform, and studies evaluating device programming to enhance benefit from CRT are reviewed. The notion of an "optimal" left ventricular (LV) pacing site, the rationale for identifying and avoiding LV pacing in regions of scar, the use of anatomic, hemodynamic, and electrical parameters to identify an optimal LV pacing site, and the potential utility of multi-site LV pacing to enhance benefit from CRT are discussed. Finally, the advantages and disadvantages of the various methods for LV lead delivery are reviewed.
