CRT for Atypical Populations

As the tools to provide successful left ventricular lead placement have expanded, the appropriate patient population to benefit from cardiac resynchronization therapy is still unclear.  Is there a role for CRT in the patient with a non-left bundle branch block pattern, or for a narrow QRS? 

What are future advances?  Once a CRT device is implanted, this pathway will provide insights on how to avoid non-responders.
