Cost-effectiveness analysis of quadripolar versus bipolar left ventricular leads for cardiac resynchronization defibrillator therapy in a large, multicenter UK registry.
Evaluate the cost effectiveness of quadripolar vs. bipolar CRTD systems.
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.
606 patients were implanted at 3 UK centres (319:Q, 287:B), between 2009–2014; mean follow-up 879 days. Rehosp...Expand abstract
