Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), also called biventricular pacing, uses a special kind of pacemaker, called a biventricular pacemaker, designed to treat the delay in heart ventricle contractions. It keeps the right and left ventricles pumping together in sync by sending small electrical impulses through the leads. Two to three leads (wires) are implanted through a vein in the chest into the right and left ventricles, and sometimes the right atrium. This therapy has been shown to improve the symptoms of heart failure and the person's overall quality of life.
