  Purpose
This study is a multi-center, prospective and randomized trial. The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that the use of the BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring system (HM) can safely reduce the number of regularly scheduled office follow-up visits, compared to the conventional method of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) follow-up.

Condition Intervention Phase
Patient Indicated for an ICD Other: Home Monitoring Other: In-Office Conventional Follow-up Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: TRUST: Lumos-T Safely RedUceS RouTine Office Device Follow-up

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Home Monitoring Effectiveness [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Average number of office-based implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) follow-up visits in the Home Monitoring arm vs the Conventional (calendar-based) follow-up arm.

  • Percent of Participants Experiencing Death, Incidence of Stroke, or Event Requiring Surgical Intervention. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Percentage of participants experiencing death, incidence of stroke, or event(s) requiring surgical intervention. Outcome measure time frame is 12 months.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Early Detection of Cardiac Events [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Detection time relative to onset of cardiac events (atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation).

  • Patient Initiated Follow-up [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Percentage of total patient initiated inqueries that result in ER or office follow-up visits.
