Pediatric Resynchronization Therapy for Cardiomyopathy

The medical team at Children's National is at the forefront of implanting biventricular pacemakers for improving cardiac function in children with cardiomyopathy. Physicians resynchronize the heart to improve cardiac function, as well as the patient's clinical status.
