ST Monitoring to Detect Acute Coronary Syndrome Events in Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Patients (AnalyzeST)

This study is currently recruiting participants. (see Contacts and Locations)
Verified September 2013 by St. Jude Medical
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
St. Jude Medical Identifier:
First received: August 22, 2011
Last updated: September 4, 2013
Last verified: September 2013

This is a prospective, non-randomized, multicenter, pivotal Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) study. The intent of this study is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the ST Monitoring Feature in St Jude Medical ICD systems.

Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary Artery Disease
Device: Fortify® ST, Fortify Assura® ST, Ellipse® ST family of devices
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: ST Monitoring to Detect ACS Events in ICD Patients

Further study details as provided by St. Jude Medical:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent of patients who experience a false positive ST detection in 12 months FU [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 5228
Study Start Date: August 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: ST Monitoring Feature Device: Fortify® ST, Fortify Assura® ST, Ellipse® ST family of devices
Algorithm for detecting ST changes that may be indicative of an acute coronary syndrome.
Other Name: ST Monitoring Feature

Detailed Description:

This is a prospective, non-randomized, multicenter, pivotal IDE study. The intent of this study is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the ST Monitoring Feature in the Fortify® ST, Fortify Assura® ST, and Ellipse® ST family of devices, as well as any future St Jude Medical devices with the same ST Monitoring Feature capabilities. Effectiveness of the device will be evaluated by analyzing the sensitivity of the ST Monitoring Feature to detect clinical events. In addition, safety of the ST Monitoring Feature will be evaluated by demonstrating a low percentage of patients with false positive events.
