Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To summarize application experience of attain ® select II catheter delivery system for left ventricular lead implantation in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT).

METHODS:

CRT/CRT-D was applied for 86 patients with congestive heart failure and left bundle-branch block. Left ventricular lead implantation was applied without use of attain ® select II catheter delivery system in 42 patients without coronary vein anatomy variation (group A). Coronary sinus and cardiac vein angiography detected coronary vein anatomy variations in 44 patients and attain ® select II catheter delivery system was not used in 21 patients (group B) and used in 23 patients (group C). Total procedure time, LV lead implantation time, X-ray exposure time and complications were compared among groups. The optimal LV lead location were observed at the end of procedure.

RESULTS:

Patients were followed up to 245 days (160 - 368 days). Total procedure time [(119 ± 18) min vs. (142 ± 17) min; (119 ± 18) min vs. (143 ± 17) min], LV lead implantation time [(32 ± 7) min vs. (49 ± 8) min;(32 ± 7) min vs. (51 ± 7) min]and X-ray exposure time [(27 ± 6) min vs. (46 ± 84) min;(27 ± 6) min vs. (45 ± 7) min] were significant reduced in group C compared to group A and B. Procedure-related complications were similar among the 3 groups. The rate of optimal LV lead location was significantly higher in group C than in group B (96% vs. 71%).

CONCLUSIONS:

It is feasible and safe to implant LV lead through coronary sinus with attain ® select II catheter delivery system. Applying Attain ® select II catheter delivery system can improve the rate of optimal LV lead location with coronary venous anatomy variation.
