About the episode

AHA 2023 — In this short interview, we are joined by Dr Pugazhendi Vijayaraman (Geisinger Heart Institute, US) to discuss the findings of the I-CLAS study, a international collaborative investigation into left bundle branch area pacing.

This retrospective observational study compared the arrhythmic risk in biventricular pacing as compared to left bundle branch area pacing. 1778 Patients were enrolled in the trial. Investigators performed 1:1 propensity-matched scoring, with one group receiving biventricular pacing, and another receiving left bundle branch pacing. 

Results suggest that physiologic pacing with left-bundle branch pacing reduced the risk and time to occurrence of ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation.
