Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety 1 [ Time Frame: Lead implant through 3 month follow up ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety of the INGEVITY Leads will be evaluated by the lead-related complication-free rate (CFR) from lead implant through the three month follow-up, based on complications that are related to the INGEVITY Lead

  • Safety 2 [ Time Frame: 3 months through 12 months post implant ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    To satisfy the safety assessment requirements of FDA, safety of the INGEVITY Leads will also be evaluated by the lead-related complication-free rate (CFR) from three months post-implant through twelve months post implant based on complications that are related to the INGEVITY Lead during that period.

  • Effectiveness 1 [ Time Frame: Lead implant through 3 month follow up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The first aspect of effectiveness of the INGEVITY Leads will be established by demonstrating that the leads provide clinically acceptable bipolar pacing thresholds at a 0.5 ms pulse width at three months post implant.

  • Effectiveness 2 [ Time Frame: Lead implant through 3 month follow up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The second aspect of effectiveness of the INGEVITY Leads will be established by demonstrating that the leads provide clinically acceptable sensing amplitudes at three months post implant.

  • Effectiveness 3 [ Time Frame: Lead implant through 3 month follow up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The third aspect of effectiveness of the INGEVITY Leads will be established by demonstrating that the leads provide clinically acceptable pacing impedance at three months post implant.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety 3 [ Time Frame: Implant through 12 months (including available data beyond 12 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Safety Endpoint 3 will characterize the hazard of lead-related complications over time. This endpoint will use the Weibull distribution to estimate the hazard over time.
