There are no parameters predicting the individual probability of "full response" to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). The aim of this work was to find prognostic factors of full clinical and echocardiographic responses (i.e., 75% probability of restoration of normal LVEF. In conclusion, our nomogram using a combination of cause, baseline QRS width, and degree of QRS shortening in response to CRT allows assessment of individual probability of full response. This observation awaits further confirmation from larger series.
