Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
1
Epicardial left ventricular lead placement during a clinically indicated open chest surgery
Procedure: Epicardial left ventricular lead placement
Epicardial left ventricular lead placement
2
Transvenous left ventricular lead implant during a clinically indicated CRT system implant
Procedure: Transvenous left ventricular lead implant
Transvenous left ventricular lead implant

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to: a) examine the usefulness of placing an epicardial LV lead at the time of open chest surgery in patients who are likely to benefit from a CRT system following their surgery; b) compare differences between patients who receive LV leads using the transvenous approach and those patients who receive LV leads using the epicardial approach; and c) assess the cost effectiveness of placing the LV lead via the transvenous versus the epicardial approaches.
