Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy9ForewordThe authors of the Stimuprat team are privileged to offer you this monograph devoted to the interrogation and programming of the resynchronization devices built by the five main manufacturers. This is the third part of this series, which follows the interrogation of pacemakers and defibrillators.Biventricular resynchronization is a therapy currently recommended for patients presenting with heart failure (HF) and conduction defects. Various options have been proposed to decrease the proportion of non-responders, which remains the principal limitation of this invasive therapy. The follow-up of recipients of resynchronization devices cannot be optimized without a thorough understanding of the specific details of the interrogation and programming of the various devices. We present several clinical cases illustrating the details of cardiac resynchronizing pacemakers (CRT-P) and defibrillators (CRT-D), including the confirmation of consistent biventricular capture, the specific details of left ventricular stimulation, the programming of the atrioventricular and interventricular delays, their optimization during exercise and management of arrhythmias.
