Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

Patients indicated for or implanted with a Medtronic SureScan Pacing System. All subjects must meet Inclusion criteria and none of the Exclusion criteria.


Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject or legally authorized representative provides written authorization and/or consent per institution and geographical requirements
  2. Subject is or intended to be implanted with a complete SureScan pacing system consisting of both a right atrial and ventricular 5086MRI Lead (used for pacing and sensing) and a SureScan device
  3. Subject within 30 days of implant (maximum 50% of Chronic Performance Arm enrollment) or subject enrolled into Multiple MRI Scan Arm at the time of MRI scan indication

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject who is, or will be inaccessible for follow-up
  2. Implant and follow-up data, including adverse device effects and system modifications at implant through the time of enrollment are unavailable
  3. Subject with exclusion criteria required by local law
