The purpose of this study is to compare the incidence of cardiac rhythm management device (CRMD) infection and CRMD mechanical complication after CRMD replacement with a cardiac resynchronization therapy device (CRT) and AIGISRx Anti-Bacterial Envelope, to the incidence after replacement with a CRT and no AIGISRx.
Cardiac rhythm management device (CRMD) infection is associated with significant morbidity and expense. The frequency of CRMD infection is increasing faster than the frequency of CRMD implants, suggesting more effective prophylactic strategies are needed.
The AIGISRx Anti-Bacterial Envelope is an FDA-cleared polypropylene mesh that is intended to securely hold a pacemaker pulse generator or defibrillator (ICD) in order to create a stable environment when implanted in the body. It contains the antimicrobial agents, rifampin and minocycline, which have been shown to reduce infection in an in vivo model of bacterial contamination following surgical implant of the generator or defibrillator.
This is a prospective, observational, multicenter registry of subjects undergoing CRMD replacement with a CRT and AIGISRx, with or without lead revision/addition. The registry subjects will be compared to a case-matched retrospective control group undergoing CRMD replacement with a CRT and no AIGISRx, with or without lead revision/addition. The primary study endpoints are major CRMD infection and CRMD mechanical complication during the 12 months following CRMD replacement with a CRT.

A cardiac arrhythmia that is caused by interaction of two independently initiated cardiac impulses of different rates from two separate foci. Generally one focus is the SINOATRIAL NODE, the normal pacemaker. The ectopic focus is usually in the HEART VENTRICLE but can be in the HEART ATRIUM or the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. Modulation of the parasystolic rhythm by the sinus rhythm depends on the completeness of entrance block surrounding the parasystolic focus.
Method in which prolonged electrocardiographic recordings are made on a portable tape recorder (Holter-type system) or solid-state device ("real-time" system), while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It is useful in the diagnosis and management of intermittent cardiac arrhythmias and transient myocardial ischemia.
