Left ventricular pacing promising for CHF (congestive heart failure) patients
This article was originally published in Clinica
Pacing for congestive heart failure (CHF) could be about to enter wider clinical use. It appears that pacing, which is usually a treatment for bradycardia, can also improve left ventricular function by compensating for delayed ventricular conduction, which occurs frequently in CHF patients and can worsen prognosis. However, large clinical studies have yet to be performed to prove this.
