Abstract
Cardiac resynchronization Therapy (CRT) with or without a defibrillator has a positive effect on mortality and morbidity for patients with heart failure. However, comparisons between CRT-Defibrillators (CRT-D) and CRT-Pacemakers (CRT-P) are relatively scarce outside the clinical trial setting. This study aimed to assess baseline characteristics in relation to long-term prognosis in patients treated with CRT, and to investigate the potential benefit CRT-D vs. CRT-P.
