|Official Title:||Conventional Versus EP-Catheter Guided Implantation of Coronary Sinus Lead in Patients Undergoing Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy|
|Study Start Date :||August 2013|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||August 2013|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||August 2013|
In this group CS lead was implanted in a conventional manner.
In this group coronary sinus was canulated using a steerable electrophysiology catheter.
- Total Fluoroscopy Time [ Time Frame: During implantation ]During CRT device implantation fluoroscopy is used and the total fluoroscopy time is counted.
- Contrast medium account [ Time Frame: During surgical procedure ]contrast medium is used and counted during crt device implantation.
- Successful implantation [ Time Frame: During surgical procedure ]Successful crt implantation was defined as effective positioning of RV and CS lead +/- right atrial lead.
- Procedure related complications [ Time Frame: 24 hours after start of surgery ]All complications during time frame of 24 hours after start of surgery were proved whether they were procedure related.
