Abstract

Left ventricular (LV) fibrosis is important for the response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Calibrated integrated backscatter derived by 2D echocardiography quantifies myocardial ultrasound reflectivity, which may provide a surrogate of LV fibrosis. The aim of the study was first, to investigate the relation of myocardial ultrasound reflectivity assessed with calibrated integrated backscatter on CRT response, and second, to explore the "myocardial ultrasound reflectivity-CRT response" relation in patients with ischemic and nonischemic heart failure (HF).
