Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

 

Call (718) 283-7315 for an appointment with an Advanced Heart Failure specialist or request an appointment online.

 

People who have Advanced Heart Failure may develop abnormal conduction of the heart’s electrical system that changes how the heart beats. Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) may be needed to improve heart function, reduce hospitalization risk, and improve survival. These devices are surgically placed and include a special pacemaker that makes the ventricles contract in a normal fashion and in synchrony. Congestive heart failure treatment can improve heart function, reduce hospitalization risk, and improve survival.
