PURPOSE: Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) is an established treatment for symptomatic patients with heart failure, a prolonged QRS duration, and impaired left ventricular (LV) function; however, non-response rates remain high. Recently proposed computer-assisted interventional platforms for CRT provide new routes to improving outcomes. Interventional systems must process information in an accurate, fast and highly automated way that is easy for the interventional cardiologists to use...

Effectiveness of prolonged coronarography was assessed for investigation of venous heart anatomy with reference to etiology of the disease and heart chamber sizes. It was shown that lesions of the coronary arteries and morphometrical indices of the heart did not influence the heart venous anatomy. A detailed analysis of patients with ischemic heart disease and anamnesis of myocardial infarction has revealed the absence of the heart vein in the zone of old myocardial infarction. At the preoperative stage the placement of a cardiac resyncronising device the integration of data of EchoKG, prolonged coronaroangiography and others allows determination of the possible surgical method of placing the lead to the left ventricle of the heart...
