INTRINSIC RV is a two-armed randomized trial that will compare the effects of innovative dual-chamber pacing with AV Search Hysteresis to standard VVI among ICD patients.
The purpose of study is to assess whether AVSH will provide benefits of a dual-chamber ICD without the deleterious effects of unnecessary RV pacing. This study will aim to demonstrate that DDDR-AVSH is equal to VVI with respect to mortality and HF hospitalizations.

The MADIT S-ICD trial is designed to evaluate if subjects with a prior myocardial infarction, diabetes mellitus and a relatively preserved ejection fraction of 36-50% will have a survival ...
The purpose of this study is to determine how the position of the right ventricular (RV) coil of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (apex versus septum) affects the defibrillation t...
This is a prospective observational multi-center multi-national study of the characteristics and outcomes of patients receiving implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) in the Arab Gu...
Background: The wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) is an established treatment option for patients at high risk for ventricular tachycardia / ventricular fibrillation (VT/VF), eithe...

Manufacturer change and risk of system-related complications after implantable cardioverter defibrillator replacement: physicians' survey and data from the Detect Long-term Complications After Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Replacement Registry.
Some barriers seem to exist in changing implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) manufacturer at the time of device replacement. We sought to understand the obstacles to changing ICD manufacturer ...
Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator has become the first-line therapy for prevention of sudden cardiac death. Controversial results still exist regarding the effectiveness of implantable cardiovert...
Patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and co-morbid depression are at greater risk of poor quality of life and premature death. We examined if treatment expectations predict de...
Shock coil interaction in patients with multiple implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) leads is occasionally observed. We aimed to evaluate the incidence of shock coil interaction and its clini...
Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) implantation is often an elective outpatient procedure, but previous studies have shown that approximately 30% are performed during acute hospitalizations.
Implantable devices which continuously monitor the electrical activity of the heart and automatically detect and terminate ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) and VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION. They consist of an impulse generator, batteries, and electrodes.
Types of artificial pacemakers with implantable leads to be placed at multiple intracardial sites. They are used to treat various cardiac conduction disturbances which interfere with the timing of contraction of the ventricles. They may or may not include defibrillating electrodes (IMPLANTABLE DEFIBRILLATORS) as well.
A generic expression for any tachycardia that originates above the BUNDLE OF HIS.
Abnormally rapid heartbeat, usually with a HEART RATE above 100 beats per minute for adults. Tachycardia accompanied by disturbance in the cardiac depolarization (cardiac arrhythmia) is called tachyarrhythmia.
A rare form of supraventricular tachycardia caused by automatic, not reentrant, conduction initiated from sites at the atrioventricular junction, but not the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. It usually occurs during myocardial infarction, after heart surgery, or in digitalis intoxication with a HEART RATE ranging from 140 to 250 beats per minute.
