Arm Intervention/treatment
Acticor/Rivacor ICDs/CRT-Ds
Implant of the new Cor Family ICDs and Plexa ProMRI S DX lead (if applicable). Device measurements, pre-defined programming and Adverse Event Reporting
Device: Acticor/Rivacor ICDs/CRT-Ds
pre-defined device programming, measurements and follow-up schedule

Device: Plexa S DX
Implantation, measurements and follow-up schedule

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cor Family-related SADE-free rate until 3-month follow-up [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    SADE-free rate related to the Cor Family ICDs/CRT-Ds

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Kaplan-Meier estimate for the Cor Family related SADE-free rate [ Time Frame: 3 months, 12 months ]
    Application of the Kaplan-Meier method to estimate the 3-month SADE-free rate and the 12-month SADE-free rate

  2. Assessment of the Automatic LV VectorOpt test (CRT-devices only) by the investigator [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Investigator appraisal of the Overall handling of the Feature (score: Very good/good/ adequate/poor/very poor)

  3. 4. Assessment of the CRT AutoAdapt feature (CRT-devices only) by the investigator [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Investigator appraisal of the overall handling of the Feature (score: Very good/good/ adequate/poor/very poor)
