First patients with heart failure to receive pacemaker using three-dimensional image-controlled guidance
At the University Medical Center (UMC) Utrecht a pacemaker has been implanted in patients with heart failure using three-dimensional imaging to position the stimulation wires on the heart for the first time. Cardiologists expect this technology to render pacemakers much more effective in patients with heart failure than is presently the case and to potentially reduce the burden and mortality associated with the disease.
