Title:
Three-Dimensional Echocardiographic Optimization Improves Outcome in Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Compared to ECG Optimization: A Randomized Comparison. 
Abstract:
There is little consensus on optimal atrioventricular (AV) and ventricular-to-ventricular (VV) intervals in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). The aim of this study was to examine a novel combination of Doppler echocardiography (DE) and three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) for individualized AV- and VV-interval optimization compared to conventional electrocardiogram (ECG) optimization.In this double-blind, randomized controlled trial, 77 patients (male: 57, age: 68 ± 10 years) with sev...    »
