Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Device: Bi-ventricular Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator
Implantation of a Bi-ventricular Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator
Other Name: ConsultaTM

Detailed Description:

The Consulta CRT-D is an investigational bi-ventricular device that provides atrial and ventricular tachyarrhythmia detection and therapy, cardioversion, defibrillation and cardiac resynchronization therapy.

The study will be a prospective, non-randomized, multicenter clinical study, conducted in approximately 18 centers.

To allow for sufficient experience with the device, a maximum of 80 subjects may be implanted with the Consulta device. Data will be collected at baseline (enrollment), implant, 1-, 3-, and 6- months post implant and every 6 months thereafter or until study closure (whichever occurs first), unscheduled follow-up visits, System Modifications, Technical Observations, Study Deviations, Study Exit, upon notification of new or updated Adverse Events and in case of death.
