Cost-effectiveness analysis of quadripolar versus bipolar left ventricular leads for cardiac resynchronization defibrillator therapy in a large, multicenter UK registry.

Abstract:

Objectives

Evaluate the cost effectiveness of quadripolar vs. bipolar CRTD systems.

Background

Quadripolar (Q) left ventricular (LV) leads for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) help circumvent phrenic nerve stimulation (PNS) and are associated with reduced mortality during long-term follow up, compared with bipolar (B) leads.

Methods

606 patients were implanted at 3 UK centres (319:Q, 287:B), between 2009–2014; mean follow-up 879 days. Rehosp...
