Cardiac MR (CMR) will be used to assess myocardial activation and hemodynamics in patients with CRT.

Goals are to demonstrate that

  • differences in Left ventricle (LV)- right ventricle (RV) pacing delays cause differences in myocardial activation
  • differences in LV-RV pacing delays cause differences in LV/RV hemodynamics

and to use these data to optimize CRT.

Heart Failure
Device: CRT reprogramming (Medtronic CRT)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • improvement in NYHA-class [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • safety of CMR in CRT-patients [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    pacing capture threshold, sensing and lead impedances will be monitored for significant and/or clinically relevant changes.

Enrollment: 1
Study Start Date: June 2011
Study Completion Date: December 2013
Primary Completion Date: December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: CRT reprogramming (Medtronic CRT)
    CRT devices will be reprogrammed according to CMR analysis
    Other Name: Medtronic CRT devices by Medtronic are eligable to be included in this study.
Detailed Description:
CMR will be performed in patients under CRT who are currently not responding to CRT. Different LV-RV delays will be programmed during CMR and LV function and different dyssynchrony parameters will be assessed. Results will be used to determine the optimal LV-RV delay, and CRT-devices will be reprogrammed accordingly. Improvement in NYHA-class/conversion to therapy responder will be determined clinically after 3 months.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • presence of CRT device
  • CRT non responder

Exclusion Criteria:

  • pregnancy
  • end-stage renal failure
