Abstract

Heart failure (HF) and Atrial Fibrillation (AF) are both significant health issues that often coexist. Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) is a proven therapy for HF with ventricular dyssynchrony (uncoordinated contraction of the left ventricle). While CRT reduces symptoms and improves survival in normal rhythm, there are mixed reports in patients with AF. This prospective randomised multicentre study, will assess the role of AV node ablation to improve outcomes in CRT in AF.
