An alternative to coronary sinus implantation for a left ventricular pacing lead is frequently needed for cardiac resynchronization therapy. We have developed a transapical approach to implant an endocardial pacing lead that will reach the most delayed segment of the left ventricle. This method is easily combined with other transapical heart surgeries. After some technological improvement, our technique should offer easier access and better results than other currently available implantation methods.
