Indications of Cardiac Resynchronization in Non-Left Bundle Branch Block: Clinical Review of Available Evidence

Maged Henin, Hany Ragy, James Mannion, Santhosh David, Beshoy Refila, Usama Boles


Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) benefits have been firmly established in patients with heart failure and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFrEF), who remain in New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional classes II and III, despite optimal medical therapy, and have a wide QRS complex. An important and consistent finding in published systematic reviews and in subgroup analyses is that the benefits of CRT are maximum for patients with a broader QRS durations, typically described as QRS duration > 150 ms, and for patients with a typical left bundle branch block (LBBB) QRS morphology. It remains uncertain whether patients with non-LBBB QRS complex morphology clearly benefit from CRT or only modestly respond.
