Background: Patients with a class I recommendation for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) are likely to benefit, but the effect of CRT in class II patients is more heterogeneous and additional selection parameters are needed in this group.

This study sought to evaluate the prognostic value of SLICE-ESS for clinical outcome after CRT. Read More
