Abstract

The data about the incidence of subclavian venous (SCV) obstruction or thrombosis after biventricular device implantation is limited. Therefore, we aimed to assess the incidence and predictors of venous obstruction after biventricular device implantation with or without a defibrillator in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction and cardiac dyssynchrony.
