Abstract

Numerous studies have shown that biventricular pacing (BVP) improves symptoms and exercise capacity in patients with congestive cardiac failure (CCF) and left bundle branch block (LBBB). The mechanism of symptomatic improvement has been attributed to changes in ventricular synchrony. However, the degree of asynchrony is not a good predictor of response.1,2 The aim of this study was to assess whether the presence of a restrictive mitral filling pattern, previously shown to be a marker for diastolic ventricular interaction (DVI) in patients with CCF,3 might identify a cohort of patients more likely to respond to BVP.
