1) Probably your cardiologist would have suggested an AICD, which is basically a device that protects against sudden death. 2) CRT-D is a specialised device that does help in improving LVEF, but there are strict criteria as to who will benefit 3) Looking at his LVEF, probably an LVAD is a better choice
