ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the effectiveness of left ventricular (LV) or biventricular pacing during the cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Topics discussed include use of CRT in the treatment of patients of congestive heart failure with ventricular conduction delay, haemodynamic effect of intrinsic conduction during LV pacing and hopes for improvement in patients pacing the left ventricle with a multielectrode (quadripolar) catheter.

    Aims: Limitations imposed by the coronary sinus venous anatomy triggered the transseptal approach for endocardial LV lead placement.
