This study shall evaluate in daily medical practice the clinical results of the AV delay hysteresis search algorithm in patients with a INSIGNIA ULTRA or AVT pacemaker implanted for one of the three following indications: sinus node dysfunction, atrial disease (or bradycardia/tachycardia) and atrio-ventricular paroxysmal block. In addition use and outcome of automatic functions will be evaluated.

Sick Sinus Syndrome
Heart Block
Device: Insignia Ultra and Insignia AVT

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Impact of Atrio-ventricular hysteresis algorithm on percentage of Ventricular pacing [ Time Frame: At 12 Months ]
    % Vp is compared between patients with atrio-ventricular hysteresis algorithm ON and OFF in patients with sino-atrial disease or paroxysmal AV block.

Enrollment: 903
Study Start Date: September 2006
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: September 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: Insignia Ultra and Insignia AVT
    Regular AV-Delay increase to allow for intrinsic AV conduction, if present.

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 indication for a dual chamber pacemaker and not having a complete AV-block are invited to participate.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Dual chamber pacemaker (INSIGNIA ULTRA or AVT pacemaker), implant not older than 60 days, estimated life expectancy more than one year in case of associated illness, Age ≥ 18 years, signed patient information.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Indication for conventional treatment with ventricular resynchronisation or by implantable defibrillator during inclusion, implanted for severe permanent AVB (AVB 2/1 and complete), PR > 250 ms, implant of the device older than 60 days before the inclusion date, Heart transplant foreseen within six months, unexplained syncope.
