Abstract
Randomised trials involving large number of patients have demonstrated the benefits of cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) in patients with heart failure who have failed optimal medical treatment. Echocardiography plays an important role in defining dyssynchrony which is key to optimal patient selection. The electrocardiographic criteria for patient selection is supplemented by the finding of dyssynchrony on Doppler myocardial imaging, and echocardiography with Doppler myocardial imaging may eventually replace the electrocardiographic criteria for selection of patients who derive benefit from CRT.
