INTRINSIC RV - Inhibition of Unnecessary RV Pacing With AV Search Hysteresis in ICDs
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
INTRINSIC RV is a two-armed randomized trial that will compare the effects of innovative dual-chamber pacing with AV Search Hysteresis to standard VVI among ICD patients.
Condition or disease
Device: Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator
The purpose of study is to assess whether AVSH will provide benefits of a dual-chamber ICD without the deleterious effects of unnecessary RV pacing. This study will aim to demonstrate that DDDR-AVSH is equal to VVI with respect to mortality and HF hospitalizations.
