Abstract
About one-third of patients undergoing cardiac resynchronization therapy because of left bundle branch block (LBBB) and heart failure do not improve. Strauss et al. have developed strict criteria to more accurately define complete LBBB in this patient group. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of the manual application of the Strauss criteria for LBBB (QRS≥140ms in men, ≥130ms in women, along with mid-QRS notching/slurring) in consecutive patients who have been diagnosed with LBBB by the automated Glasgow criteria (QRS≥120ms).
