Abstract

Objectives: This study sought to assess the prognostic utility of echocardiographic dyssynchrony for health status improvement after cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Background: Echocardiographic measures of dyssynchrony have been proposed for patient selection for CRT, but prospective validation studies are lacking. Methods: A prospective cohort of 324 patients from 53 centers with moderate to severe heart failure, left ventricular dysfunction, QRS
