Aims The European CRT Survey is a joint initiative of the Heart Failure Association (HFA) and the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) of the European Society of Cardiology evaluating the contemporary implantation practice of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) in Europe. Methods and results Patients who had a successful CRT implantation were enrolled from 141 centres in 13 countries between November 2008 and June 2009. Baseline demographics, clinical and implantation data were collected, with a follow-up of ∼1 year (915 months). The current report describes clinical outcomes including symptom severity, cardiovascular (CV) hospitalization, and survival. A total of 2438 patients were enrolled, and follow-up data were acquired from 2111 patients (87). The population included important groups of patients poorly represented in randomized controlled trials, including very elderly patients and those with prior device implantation, atrial fibrillation, and/or QRS duration
