    Abstract

    The relationship between myocardial electrical activation by electrocardiogram (ECG) and mechanical contraction by echocardiography in left bundle-branch block (LBBB) has never been clearly demonstrated. New strict criteria for LBBB based on a fundamental understanding of physiology have recently been independently published for both ECG and echocardiography. The relationship between the 2 modalities and the relation to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) response was investigated.
