The objective of this study is to prove the safety and efficacy of the EVIA pacemaker. Primarily, the newly implemented Atrial Capture Control algorithm is evaluated, which automatically measures the right atrial threshold and subsequently adjusts the pacing output.

Condition Intervention
Pacemaker Indication Device: EVIA Pacemaker

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Master Study of the EVIA DR-T/DR/SR-T/SR Pacemaker

Further study details as provided by Biotronik SE & Co. KG:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy of Atrial Capture Control Feature (Automatic Atrial Threshold Test Minus Manual Atrial Measurement) [ Time Frame: 1 month follow-up completed ]

    atrial capture control: feature that automatically measures the atrial pacing threshold and subsequently adjusts the atrial pulse amplitude.

    atrial threshold test: measurable automatically or manually.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Complication Free Rate [ Time Frame: 1- and 3- month follow-up completed ]

    Complication free rate (in %):

    1 minus(the number of possibly pacemaker related complications divided by the number of patients)

Enrollment: 175
Study Start Date: June 2009
Study Completion Date: March 2010
Primary Completion Date: February 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Pacemaker therapy Device: EVIA Pacemaker
patient has standard indication for pacemaker therapy
