Abstract

Upgrading RV pacing systems to biventricular resynchronization modalities is a promising option for paced patients with worsening heart failure. The potentially favorable effect of upgrading has been demonstrated in several, non-randomized trials. Selection of eligible patients and technical aspects of the procedure are described. The most common procedure-related complications are reported.
