Read the Perspective from John D. Day, MD, FHRS, FACC

BOSTON — A wireless left ventricular endocardial pacing system could be a viable alternative for patients with HF in whom cardiac resynchronization therapy is not beneficial, researchers reported at the Heart Rhythm Society Annual Scientific Sessions.

The SELECT-LV nonrandomized pilot study included 39 patients with HF (mean age, 65 years; 88% men; mean LV ejection fraction, 25.6%; mean baseline QRS, 174 ms) with an indication for CRT but who were unsuited for or did not respond to conventional CRT.
