Brief Summary:
Observational study is evaluating Ventricular Tachycardia (VT)/Ventricular Fibrillation (VF) thérapies as a function of ventricular pacing

Condition or disease
Ventricular Tachycardia Ventricular Fibrillation

Detailed Description:
This protocol consists in a non-interventional multi-centre, prospective study. The observational study will also answer the question of the impact of ventricular pacing on the outcome of patients implanted with ICD & CRT-D devices and how the ICD & CRT-D devices are used in clinical practice through two years follow-up.
