Intervention Details:
    Device: Endotak Reliance
    Endotak Reliance is a defibrillation lead delivering pacing and defibrillation therapy to the ventricle as needed.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Consecutive patients with the indication for an implantable ICD are invited to participate.
