resynchronization therapy

resynchronization therapy

(re?sing?kro-ni-za'shon) [ re- + synchronize]
The use of left and right ventricular pacemaking in patients with congestive heart failure and bundle branch block to restore the normal timing of ventricular depolarization. Resynchronization reduces symptoms of heart failure.
Synonym: cardiac resynchronization therapy

Food and Drug Administration approval to treat symptoms of patients with advanced heart failure who are not candidates for treatment with other devices such as cardiac resynchronization therapy, the agency announced on Friday.
The FDA issued a safety communication to alert health care providers and patients about issues that may cause batteries in certain Medtronic implantable pacemakers or cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers to drain more quickly than expected without warning patients or health care providers.
Background: The influence of different right ventricular lead locations on ventricular arrhythmias (VTA) in patients with a cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is not clear.
The T-ICDs segment is further classified into single-chamber ICDs, dual-chamber ICDs, and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT-Ds).
Such patients typically have NYHA class III heart failure despite optimal medical therapy, but are not sick enough for a left ventricular assist device or heart transplant and do not qualify for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT).
Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) for heart failure in pediatric congenital heart disease is an emerging option [4, 5]; however, few reports on CRT in pediatric LVNC patients are available [6].
In refractory congestive heart failure (CHF) accompanied by left bundle branch block (LBBB), cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) with biventricular pacing has been shown to be associated with better outcomes and has been established as an adjunctive heart failure treatment (13).
In the initial phase, the new data network will capture de-identified data from approximately 80,000 patients with heart failure to explore real-world factors that determine a patient's response to Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)--a clinically proven heart failure treatment option for some heart failure patients that is designed to help the lower chambers of the heart beat together in a more synchronized pattern.
Medical company Boston Scientific (NYSE:BSX) disclosed on Monday the availability of the implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) systems featuring the HeartLogic Heart Failure Diagnostic to help physicians improve heart failure (HF) management in the US.
