MultiPoint Pacing (MPP) may improve clinical outcomes in patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT-D), but its impact on battery longevity in a real-world population has not been investigated in large trials. Aim of this paper is to compare projected battery longevity in CRT-D patients with and without MPP during long-term follow-up.
