Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Patients With Inappropriate Ventricular Tachycardia (VT)/Ventricular Fibrillation (VF) Therapy (Shock or Antitachycardia Pacing [ATP]) After the Pre-Discharge Visit [ Time Frame: From date of pre-discharge until a minimum of 12 months follow-up until study closure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An inappropriate therapy is defined as a VT/VF therapy, either shock or antitachycardia pacing (ATP), delivered for a supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). All events for which a VT/VF therapy was delivered and a stored electrogram exists were reviewed by an independent adjudication committee to determine the appropriateness of device rhythm classification and subsequent therapy delivery.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to First Inappropriate Shock Using VITALITY and Selected Medtronic Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICDs) [ Time Frame: Time of event ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Positive Predictive Value (PPV) of Ventricular Tachycardia/Fibrillation (VT/VF) Discrimination Algorithms Found in VITALITY 2 and Medtronic Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs) [ Time Frame: Time of event ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to First Inappropriate Therapy for Which the Discrimination Algorithm Found in VITALITY 2 and Medtronic Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICDs) Inappropriately Classified the Episode [ Time Frame: Time of event ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

RIGHT will compare the incidence of Ventricular Tachycardia/Fibrillation (VT/VF) therapies delivered for Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) episodes using VITALITY 2 devices with Rhythm ID™ to that of ICDs employing other rhythm discrimination algorithms. Appropriateness of therapies will be assessed after independent adjudication of all VT/VF events leading to therapy. Comparisons will be made between device manufacturers across patient populations receiving either a dual- or single-chamber device.
