His bundle pacing?

The EP wants to try his bundle pacing one me.  Anyone with HFrEF make the switch?  If so did you get any significant improvements in cardiac function? A more difficult question would be did you get a mortality benefit from it or just an improvement in symptoms, or both?

HIs Bundle

I'd ask why he thinks His bundle pacing will be significantly better for you than CRT pacing.  Certainly it's more natural but, since you already have CRT, is it really significantly better or is it "something to try"?  I don't know that the answer to either of these questions changes anything but it's information, never a bad thing.

I agree AgentX

Those are great questions I will have to ask him next week at my appointment!  He seemed to think his bundle pacing would "cure" my HF lol, seems like a lot of sunshine being blow up somewhere; especially considering the day before I was with the heart transplant doc who literally said "it's time we start looking into getting you a new heart".  

I forgot to add...

He also said he would want to leave my CRT-P in place "in case the his bundle pacemaker fails".  This sounded a bit odd to me? Two devices? LOL the saga continues...

See the Papers page of <His-Bundle Pacing Papers – His-Pacing.org (his-pacing.org)> and scroll down to "Can my heart heal itself" to read the reports.

You won’t have 2 devices.

You will still have one device. They will disconnect the CRT and place a HIS bundle lead with the RV lead.  Wait I'm confused. What is he doing? LOL
