Abstract

Acute hemodynamic data of left ventricular based pacing were assessed in 2 groups of patients with severe cardiac failure: 11 patients with atrial fibrillation and 17 patients with sinus rhythm. Both biventricular and left ventricular pacing significantly improved acute hemodynamic findings to a similar degree in both groups, suggesting that left ventricular based pacing may be beneficial in patients with severe cardiac failure regardless of whether or not they are in sinus rhythm.
