Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Ventricular Pace Suppression Study With the EVIA/ENTOVIS DR-T/DR Pacemaker

Further study details as provided by Biotronik SE & Co. KG:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of right ventricular pacing with the help of the VpS algorithm in the EVIA/ ENTOVIS pacemakers. [ Time Frame: 6-8 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • A Complication free rate >95%, with respect to the VpS feature of the implanted pacemaker. [ Time Frame: 6-8 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 84
Study Start Date: January 2010
Study Completion Date: September 2011
Primary Completion Date: September 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Ventricular Pace Suppression- ON Device: VpS algorithm in EVIA and ENTOVIS pacemakers
For one group of patients, the VpS algorithm will be activated and for the other group, the VpS algorithm will be deactivated until the cross-over, where these conditions will be switched.
Ventricular Pace Suppression- OFF Device: VpS algorithm in EVIA and ENTOVIS pacemakers
For one group of patients, the VpS algorithm will be activated and for the other group, the VpS algorithm will be deactivated until the cross-over, where these conditions will be switched.

Detailed Description:

The aim of this study is to investigate the percentage of reduction of ventricular pacing using the VpS feature of the EVIA/ENTOVIS pacemaker in a controlled clinical investigation.
