This new edition of the successful Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy builds on the strengths of the first edition, providing basic knowledge as well as an up–to–date summary of new advances in CRT for heart failure. Fully updated to include information on technological advances, trouble shooting and recent key clinical trials, and with nine new chapters, this expanded text provides the latest information, keeping the reader up–to–date with this rapidly evolving field.
