  Purpose

Biventricular pacing is a validated treatment for patients suffering from heart failure resistant to medical treatment. However, up to 30% of the patients are non responsive to this strategy using the coronary sinus approach to pace the Left Ventricle (LV).

It has been demonstrated that the magnitude of the improvement was highly dependant on the LV pacing site. The coronary sinus approach rarely offers more than 1 or 2 potential pacing sites. Resynchronisation using a transeptal approach to pace the left ventricle on the cardiology has been shown feasible on small series. We therefore would like to compare these two approached in a randomised prospective study to confirm the hypotheses that endocardial LV pacing by offering multiple choices for the pacing sites reduces the number of non responders and is associated with greater hemodynamic benefit when compared to the conventional coronary sinus approach.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the acute hemodynamic response judged by dP/dt max [ Time Frame: Visit 3 : implantation day, during pacing procedure ]
    The primary outcome will be the acute hemodynamic response of the randomized pacing modality (endocardial vs epicardial Left Ventricle pacing) as judged by the highest gain in dP/dt max


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Implant success rate [ Time Frame: Visit 3 : implantation day, end of pacing procedure ]
  • number of left ventricular pacing sites assessed [ Time Frame: Visit 3 : implantation day, end of pacing procedure ]
  • Pacing Procedure duration [ Time Frame: Visit 3 : implantation day, end of pacing procedure ]
  • Per and post implantation complications rate [ Time Frame: Visit 4 : within 7 days after pacing procedure ]
  • Post implantation echocardiography comparing spontaneous rhythm and biventricular pacing for left ventricle ejection fraction [ Time Frame: within 7 days after pacing procedure ]
  • Post implantation echocardiography comparing spontaneous rhythm and biventricular pacing for mitral regurgitation [ Time Frame: within 7 days after pacing procedure ]
  • Post implantation echocardiography comparing spontaneous rhythm and biventricular pacing for atrioventricular asynchronism [ Time Frame: within 7 days after pacing procedure ]
  • Post implantation echocardiography comparing spontaneous rhythm and biventricular pacing for inter and intra-ventricular asynchronism [ Time Frame: within 7 days after pacing procedure ]
  • sensing performances of left ventricle pacing leads [ Time Frame: within 7 days after pacing procedure ]
  • pacing threshold performances of left ventricle pacing leads [ Time Frame: within 7 days after pacing procedure ]

  • Clinical benefit at 6 month Follow up: Gain in NYHA [ Time Frame: 6-months after pacing procedure ]
  • Clinical benefit at 6 month Follow up: 6 minutes walk test [ Time Frame: 6-months after pacing procedure ]
