Cardiac resynchronization improves heart failure in one patient with Myotonic Dystrophy type 1. A case report

Abstract

We report an improvement in symptoms of heart failure, a reduced left ventricular dysfunction and induced reverse remodelling in one patient with Myotonic Dystrophy type 1, showing an early onset ventricular dysfunction secondary to a complete left bundle branch block (LBBB) who underwent cardioverter defibrillator CRT (ICD- CRT) implantation.

Key words: myotonic dystrophy, cardiac resynchronization therapy, sudden death
