The COGENT-4 Field Following Study will evaluate the clinical performance of the Boston Scientific TELIGEN 100 HE Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD), the COGNIS 100 HE Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy ICD (CRT-D) systems and the RELIANCE 4-SITE defibrillation lead (when available). An optional sub-study will also evaluate the clinical performance of the Reverse Mode Switch (RMS) feature in the TELIGEN 100 HE DR ICD.

This observation study evaluates the safety and effectiveness of UPT therapy in subjects during either an indicated ventricular tachycardia ablation procedure or an ICD implant procedure.
The objective of this clinical investigation is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the CyberHeart System in patients with refractory ventricular tachycardia (VT). The ablation will be...
• Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is defined as an abnormally rapid heart rhythm originating above the ventricles. It usually has narrow complex tachycardia but this is not always the...

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.
A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia characterized by an extremely rapid, hemodynamically unstable ventricular tachycardia (150-300 beats/min) with a large oscillating sine-wave appearance. If untreated, ventricular flutter typically progresses to VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION.
A malignant form of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia that is characterized by HEART RATE between 200 and 250 beats per minute, and QRS complexes with changing amplitude and twisting of the points. The term also describes the syndrome of tachycardia with prolonged ventricular repolarization, long QT intervals exceeding 500 milliseconds or BRADYCARDIA. Torsades de pointes may be self-limited or may progress to VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION.
Cardiac electrical stimulators that apply brief high-voltage electroshocks to the HEART. These stimulators are used to restore normal rhythm and contractile function in hearts of patients who are experiencing VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION or ventricular tachycardia (TACHYCARDIA, VENTRICULAR) that is not accompanied by a palpable PULSE. Some defibrillators may also be used to correct certain noncritical dysrhythmias (called synchronized defibrillation or CARDIOVERSION), using relatively low-level discharges synchronized to the patient's ECG waveform. (UMDNS, 2003)
An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the BUNDLE OF HIS, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide QRS complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (AV dissociation).
