QuickOptTM Study - Using the QuickOptTM Method for Timing Cycle Optimization (QuickOpt)

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
St. Jude Medical Identifier:
First received: February 4, 2009
Last updated: February 22, 2011
Last verified: February 2011
QuickOptTM optimization method provides a quicker, simpler and reliable alternative to standard echocardiography methods for optimization of sensed AV, paced AV and V-V delays in patients with CRT-P devices

Condition Intervention
Heart Failure Device: QuickOpt

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: QuickOptTM Study - Using the QuickOptTM Method for Timing Cycle Optimization

Further study details as provided by St. Jude Medical:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the aortic velocity time integral value derived by the QuickOptTM optimization method with that derived by the standard echocardiography optimization methods [ Time Frame: 1 day ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time required for each optimization method considered in this study [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
  • Effects of any spontaneous cardiac events during the QuickOpt optimization process and these events are not limited to premature ventricular complex (PVC), pacemaker-mediated tachycardia (PMT), atrial fibrillation (AF) and far-field R-wave oversensing [ Time Frame: 1 day ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: September 2007
Study Completion Date: September 2009
Primary Completion Date: September 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: QuickOpt
QuickOpt is an optimization algorithm to program the AV, PV and VV delays
Device: QuickOpt
The QuickOpt algorithm will suggest values for programming AV, PV and VV delay.
