Abstract

Biventricular pacing has been recently proposed as a new therapy to improve haemodynamics in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy. The aim of this report is to analyse the echocardiographic data obtained in the patients enrolled in the InSync Italian Registry in order to explain the effects of biventricular pacing on interventricular delay and on left and right ventricular function. Furthermore, a subgroup of 23 patients in the InSync Italian Registry were studied more accurately by echocardiography to obtain more significant data. After a mean follow-up period of 9·3 ± 5·1 months the following changes in performance parameters were observed: a significant increase of cardiac output (3·6 ± 1·21 min-1 vs 4·2 ± 1·61 min-1, P
