Vitenskapelig tittel:
Prediction of heart-failure and mortality by novel echocardiographic parameters in individuals with left bundle branch block

This study will use modern echocardiographic parameters including strain rate imaging and measures for regional wall stress together with ECG criteia for partially delayed electric activation of the left ventricle in order to predict the natural course of heart-failure development or mortality. Influence of loading on development of dyssynchrony in patients with bundle branch block has just recently been described and is probably the missing link for the prediction of long-term course in these patients.This study aims to show the ability of echocardiographic functional and geometrical measures to identify patients at risk for heart-failure, needing cardiac resynchronization therapy or high risk for sudden cardiac death.
