Abstract

In summary, this study found that heart failure patients with ventricular conduction disturbance and permanent AF treated with CRT showed large and sustained long-term (up to 4 years) improvement of LV function and functional capacity, similar to patients in SR, but only if AVJ ablation was performed.
