ACCF, AHA and HRS Issue Updated CRT Guidelines
The American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF), American Heart Association (AHA) and the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) have jointly released updated guidelines for treating heart rhythm disorders. Chief among the updates are expanded indications for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). The revised guidelines reflect new evidence that patients with mild heart failure or NYHA class II should also be considered for CRT based on their electrocardiogram (ECG) results.
