Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

Service:

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), also called biventricular pacing, is delivered by a small, battery-operated device that can be permanently placed inside you. This new therapy is typically used for ventricular dysynchrony, a type of heart failure, where the two ventricles in the heart are not beating at the same time. This specialized pacemaker helps your ventricles beat together to pump efficiently. If the sensor detects that the heart is beating too slow, electrical impulses from the pacemaker are sent through leads (wires) placed near the heart wall.
