The study objective is to collect mid-term clinical outcome in a group of patients implanted with permanent pacemaker (PM) according to real-life clinical practice in a multicenter and international environment.


Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Clinical Outcome of Pacemaker paTIents According to Pacing Modality and Primary INDications

Further study details as provided by Guidant Corporation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Two-year all-cause mortality in patients implanted with PM - overall and stratified per patient characteristics, primary indications for implant, chosen pacing modality and device programming. [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Two-year cardiac cause mortality or first cardiac cause hospitalization according to physiologic pacing setting. [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlation between physiologic pacing setting and actual programmed pacing parameters. [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinical development of indications to implantable-cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or cardiac resynchronization device (CRT), and upgrade to ICD or CRT [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Patients currently implanted with permanent Pacemaker according to guidelines

Detailed Description:

The principal objective of the OPTI-MIND study is to collect data on two-year all-cause mortality in a general population implanted with a PM according to current clinical practice. Additionally, the study aims to stratify the outcome by both known patient-related risk factors and by physiologic pacing mode setting (a specifically defined PM programming). Stratification will be done for pre-specified classes of patients on the basis of their primary rhythm disease.

Study Population

Patient implanted with permanent pacemaker accroding to guidelines.


Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients implanted with a current Boston Scientific pacemaker (all ALTRUA models) or any future commercially available Boston Scientific PM families according to international and local guidelines for pacemaker implantation;
  • Patients who are willing and capable of providing informed consent, participating in all testing associated with this clinical investigation at an approved clinical investigational centre;
  • Patients whose age is 18 years or above, or of legal age to give informed consent specific to state and national law.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Unable to be followed up by the participating centres for a period of two years;
  • Current device implanted for more than 15 days;
  • Women of childbearing potential who are, or plan to become, pregnant during the time of the study (method of assessment upon physician's discretion);
  • Patients who are currently enrolled in another investigational study or registry that would directly interfere with the current study, except when the patient is participating in a mandatory governmental registry or extensions/amendments of the current protocol. Each instance should be brought to the attention of the sponsor to determine eligibility.
