Brief Summary:
It is the aim of this register to document the development of therapies by implantation of Cardioverter/Defibrillators (ICDs) and/or Cardiac Resynchronization therapy (CRT)-Systems.

Condition or disease
Heart Failure

Detailed Description:
The possibility of evaluation of successes as well as of the complications of these therapies is needed to make quality management possible. Every German Center, implanting ICDs or CRT-devices, is encouraged to contribute to this register; data are collected by use of an electronical CRF.
