Abstract

The acceptable outcome was demonstrated with our concept to recover the intraventricular and atrioventricular synchrony. Although it might be difficult to establish the patient selection criteria for concomitant CRT and valvular surgery, our strategy is considered to be a feasible procedure to improve the morbidity and mortality in patients with severe heart failure due to valvular disease.
