Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy


Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) is an important new treatment for symptoms associated with congestive heart failure (CHF) caused by weakening of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy). Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT), also called biventricular pacing, uses a biventricular pacemaker, designed to help the ventricles contract more normally. It keeps the right and left ventricles pumping together.

This therapy has been shown to improve the symptoms of heart failure and overall quality of life in patients with significant symptoms that aren't controlled with medication. A CRT-P is an implantable Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) pacemaker for patients with heart failure.

The device monitors the heart's rhythm, detects irregularities and corrects them with electrical impulses. It differs from other implantable pacemakers in that they help the heart’s lower chambers – the ventricles – work in tandem. To do this, CRT-Ps have three leads – wires that deliver energy to the heart – rather than one or two, as in other pacemakers.

  • CRT-Ps enhance the heart’s effectiveness and increase blood flow.
  • They improve heart failure symptoms like fatigue, shortness of breath and exercise intolerance.
  • Significantly lowers the risk of life-threatening cardiac events.

A CRT-P improves a patient’s quality of life significantly. The interventional procedure is performed by a cardiologist to implant a CRT-P.

While functioning like a normal pacemaker to treat slow heart rhythms, a CRT-P device also delivers small electrical impulses to the left and right ventricles to help them contract at the same time so that the heart pumps more efficiently. A CRT system is made up of two parts.

  • The heart device, which is actually a tiny computer, plus a battery, contained in a small titanium metal case that is about the size of a pocket watch.
  • Insulated wires, called leads, are implanted to carry information signals from patient’s heart to the heart device and to carry electrical impulses to patient’s heart.

What is a CRT device?

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an important new treatment for symptoms associated with congestive heart failure (CHF) caused by weakening of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy).


Why is CRT required?

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) requires a minor surgical procedure to implant a device in the chest. It is a treatment for heart failure in people whose ventricles don't contract at the same time.

Those who have had heart failure, their heart muscle have weakened and may not be able to pump out enough blood to support the body. This can be worsened if the heart's chambers aren't in sync with each other.

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) delivers electrical signals that cause the heart to beat in a way that maximizes the amount of blood that's pumped out of the heart. This treatment may reduce patient’s symptoms of heart failure and reduce risk of the heart failure complications, including death.

There are several factors like past medical history, diagnosis and other related factors that must be considered prior to implanting a CRT device. Every patient is unique, therefore careful analysis is an essential pre-requisite to determine the correct timing & approach, as well as choose the appropriate type of the device. Cardiologists advise CRT-P implantation in patients with advanced HF, severe renal insufficiency or dialysis, and other major co-morbidities.

In general, Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) is for heart failure patients with moderate to severe symptoms and whose left and right heart chambers do not beat in unison. However, CRT is not effective for everyone and is not for those with mild heart failure symptoms, diastolic heart failure or who do not have issues with the chambers not beating together. It is also not suitable for patients who have not fully explored correcting the condition through medication therapies. Till date, studies have shown CRT to be equally effective for both men and women.

Will my life change after the device is implanted?

Your life could be longer, more productive, happier and healthier with the device implantation. Be sure to follow carefully all the advises given by your doctor.


How do I live with my CRT?

  • Check your pulse and keep a record of it the way your doctor tells you.
  • Your doctor will check your device every three to six months.
  • Take your medicine the way your doctors tell you.
  • Follow all doctors’ advice..
  • Carry an I.D. card with you so others know you have an ICD.
  • Tell airport security that you have an ICD.
  • Household microwaves, electric appliances, most office and light shop equipment will NOT affect your CRT.
  • If you work around industrial microwaves, electricity, cars or other large motors, ask your doctor about possible effects..

Can I use a mobile phone if I have an CRT?

You can use a cell phone, if you take these steps:

  • Hold the phone to the ear on the side of your body opposite from your ICD.
  • When your phone is on, try to keep it at least six inches away from the device. For example ,Don’t carry your phone in your chest pocket over your device.
