Further study details as provided by Boston Scientific Corporation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Implant success rate at septal site [ Time Frame: At implant ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse events and effects related to defibrillation lead during 5 year follow-up [ Time Frame: 5 year follow-up ]
  • Number of successful low energy shocks in VT zone during 1 year follow-up [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  • Evolution of LVEF [ Time Frame: LVEF over 5 years ]
  • Overall adverse events and effects [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

Enrollment: 208
Study Start Date: April 2005
Study Completion Date: September 2012
Primary Completion Date: September 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Mid septal site location
RV lead is placed at mid septum.
Device: Endotak Reliance G
Reliance G is a defibrillation lead to be placed in the right ventricle.
Active Comparator: Apical site location
RV lead is placed in apical position
Device: Endotak Reliance G
Reliance G is a defibrillation lead to be placed in the right ventricle.

Detailed Description:
The rate of success at implant and the positive clinical outcomes for the patients implanted with a lead of defibrillation at the septal site would make it possible to recommend this site as a "new standard" for implant of the defibrillation lead in the RV for ICD.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • ICD indication according to current Guidelines

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Indication for cardiac resynchronisation therapy, absence of spontaneous ventricular rhythm, pacemaker dependency
