Brief Summary:
The purpose of the Secura clinical study is to evaluate the overall system safety and clinical performance of the Secura DR Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Tachyarrhythmias Device: Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The Secura ICD is an investigational dual chamber ICD that provides atrial and ventricular tachyarrhythmia detection and therapy, cardioversion, defibrillation, dual chamber rate-responsive bradycardia pacing and diagnostics.

The study will be a prospective, non-randomized, multicenter clinical study, conducted in approximately 15 centers.

To allow for sufficient experience with the device, a maximum of 80 subjects may be implanted with the Secura 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.
