Case history A 79-year-old woman with a background history of non-ischaemic dilated cardiomyopathy with severe left ventricular (LV) impairment, left-bundle branch block (LBBB) with QRS duration 130–140 ms and LV dyssynchrony, underwent cardiac resynchronisation device implantation after optimisation of her heart failure medication. She continued to remain breathless (New York Heart Association [NYHA] grade III) even after implantation of the device.
