Focus on the Impact of Ventricular Pacing in Unselected Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator-Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Defibrillator (ICD-CRTD) Patients
Recruitment status was Active, not recruiting
The primary objective of this observational study is to show that ICD VR and DR patients presenting more than 50% cumulative right ventricular pacing percentage present significantly more therapies for Ventricular Tachycardia (VT)/Ventricular Fibrillation (VF)episodes compared to ICD patients presenting less than 50% cumulative ventricular pacing percentage during two years follow-up.

This protocol consists in a non-interventional multi-centre, prospective study.
The observational study will also answer the question of the impact of ventricular pacing on the outcome of patients implanted with ICD & CRT-D devices and how the ICD & CRT-D devices are used in clinical practice through two years follow up and will address the following:
Impact of ventricular pacing on patients outcome: impact of ventricular pacing on the incidence of VT/VF episodes for each models, incidence of atrial arrhythmia for each models, evolution of the cardiopathy (New York Heart Association NYHA Class, Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction LVEF), morbidity.
