Study Completion Date: August 2011
Primary Completion Date: August 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
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.
