What is Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT-D)?
Cardiac resynchronization therapy is a procedure in which a device is implanted in your chest to help your heart's chambers squeeze (contract) more efficiently and in a more organized way.
A biventricular pacemaker (also known as a cardiac resynchronization device) delivers electrical signals to both lower chambers of the heart after cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). The signals cause your ventricles to contract in a more coordinated manner, resulting in better blood pumping out of your heart.
CRT therapy means you will have the pacemaker placed under your skin by minor surgery. Wires from the device are connected to the ventricles on both sides of your heart. The CRT device sends electrical signals to the ventricles to make them pump together the way they should. This type of electrical stimulation is called biventricular pacing.
If your heart rhythm is dangerously unpredictable, the device may also include an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), which can give an electrical shock to reset your heartbeat.
Cardiac resynchronization therapy with a pacemaker (CRT-P) : The pacemaker for cardiac resynchronization therapy comprises three leads that link to the right upper chamber (right atria) and both lower chambers of your heart (ventricles).
Cardiac resynchronization therapy with a pacemaker and an ICD (CRT-D) : People with heart failure who are also at risk of sudden cardiac death may benefit from this device. It can identify problematic heart rhythms and provide a more powerful energy shock than a pacemaker can, which can reset your heartbeat.
When is Cardiac Catheterization required?
Cardiac resynchronization therapy is a treatment for heart failure in patients who have uncoordinated ventricular contractions.
Your heart muscle is weakened with heart failure, and it may not be able to pump enough blood to support your body. This can be exacerbated if the chambers of your heart aren't in rhythm with one another.
Cardiac resynchronization treatment can help you manage your heart failure symptoms and reduce your risk of consequences, including death.
How is Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy done?
Your doctor will make a small cut (incision) and create a pocket under the skin. This pocket will hold the wires and computer battery pack for the CRT.
Your doctor will put IV lines in the large vein that feeds your heart. He or she will put CRT wires (leads) into the vein and feed them into your heart. Special X-rays will be taken to make sure the leads are in the right place on both sides of your heart.
If the leads are in the right place and working as they should, they will be attached to the CRT pacemaker. Your doctor will put the pacemaker through the incision and under your skin. The incision is then closed with sutures or staples and apply a dressing.
What is the Recovery after Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy like?
After cardiac resynchronization therapy, you'll spend 1-2 nights in the hospital. Before you leave the hospital, your doctor will test your device to ensure that it is properly programmed. After a few days, most people can resume their normal activities.
It is critical that you follow your doctor's instructions to the letter. For the first six weeks, you may need to minimize activities including lifting, straining, and stretching. Inquire with your doctor about when you can resume specific activities.
Make sure your doctor checks the device's functionality on a regular basis. At least once every six months, this should be done.
What Results Can I Expect from Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy?
In around 7 out of 10 cases of heart failure, cardiac resynchronization therapy is effective. CRT does not work for everyone with heart failure. If you have advanced heart failure, for example, you are less likely to react to CRT. If you have mild to moderate heart failure, CRT may help you live longer, improve your heart function, and enhance your quality of life.

My dad was advised cardiac bypass surgery in CA, USA, but because of being uninsured, such high costs of cardiac surgery in the US, we were really not able to afford it. IndiCure has actually helped in saving my dad's life and we are really grateful for the same. I am falling short of words, to express my gratitude to the surgeon who was very helpful and courteous. Will recommend IndiCure to everyone!
John Smith ( California, United States of America )
Procedure : CABG surgery
My son 4 years old was born with a heart defect which the doctors said needed a highly specialized surgery. Our cardiologist highly spoke of Indian surgeons and suggested us to go to India and in hindsight now I realize how right he was! My son was successfully operated and I must thank Indicure for the excellent arrangements they made.

Frequently Asked Questions
CRTs are divided into two categories. One is a unique type of pacemaker. A cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker (CRT-P) or "biventricular pacemaker" is what it's called. The other is the similar device, but with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator integrated in (ICD). A cardiac resynchronization treatment defibrillator is the name for this type (CRT-D).
You will stay at the hospital for 2-3 days and about a week to ten days in India after the procedure. So, you would need around 12-14 days for your CRT implantation in India.
Yes, the patient can get the MRI done with the implant.
The patient should stay away from certain hobbies like rough sports. Most people can resume their normal daily activities following a full recovery from the surgery.
Many people can participate in their favorite hobbies thanks to an implantable cardiac device. However, some activities, such as rough-contact sports, should be avoided.
Yes. The majority of household appliances are safe to use if they are well-maintained and in good functioning order. Microwave ovens, large appliances, electric blankets, and heating pads are all examples.
Magnetic therapy items, stereo speakers, and hand-held massagers, for example, can have a temporary effect on the operation of the implanted heart device. As a result, things containing magnets should be kept at least six inches away from the heart device.
Patients who use a CRT device can travel with confidence and safety. A Medical Device ID card is given to the patient. This card serves as a reminder to medical and security officials that you have a CRT device implanted.
NOTE: It's critical to keep the card with you when travelling because the gadget contains metal pieces that could set off metal detectors at airport security. Airport security wands may potentially cause the device to malfunction temporarily. Instead than employing a handheld wand, security staff should do a hand search. If a wand is being used, you can request that the security professionals search the device swiftly and without holding the wand over it. Because it may have an impact on the device.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.
Steve Gofast recommends IndiCure Health Tours. May 21, 2019
The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
