Journal CME/HeartRhythm Journal: September 2017 Volume 14, Issue 9: Permanent His-bundle pacing for cardiac resynchronization therapy: Initial feasibility study in lieu of left ventricular lead is organized by Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) and will be held from Aug 29, 2017 - Aug 29, 2019.
The target audience for this medical event for all professionals who participate in the care and management of heart rhythm disorders. This CME Conference has been approved with a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.
Permanent His-bundle pacing (HBP) has the potential to physiologically normalize wide QRS duration in patients with bundle branch block and cardiomyopathy. The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of incorporating a His-bundle lead for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) in lieu of a coronary sinus lead.
• Assess the candidacy for His bundle pacing (HBP) among patients with a wide baseline QRS morphology
• Identify His bundle injury at implant based on review of intracardiac electrograms on device programmer
• Recognize nonselective versus selective His bundle capture upon review of 12-lead ECGs
• Determine appropriate programming parameters for utilization of HBP for resynchronization in lieu of a left ventricular (LV) lead
• Among patients meeting traditional indications for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), implementation of HBP may successfully achieve resynchronization in lieu of an LV lead.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
