Clinical Outcome of Pacemaker paTIents According to Pacing Modality and Primary INDications OPTI-MIND 2 (OPTI-MIND 2)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of the study is to demonstrate that reduction of unnecessary pacing provided by RYTHMIQ algorithm programed to ON in a pacemaker is associated with better clinical outcomes in bradycardia target population.
Combined event rate of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular hospitalizations and atrial fibrillation at 2 years in a specific Brady population implanted with BSC PM devices equipped with RYHTMIQ feature [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
Combined event rate of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular hospitalizations and atrial fibrillation at 2 years in a specific Brady population implanted with BSC PM devices equipped with RYHTMIQ feature compared to data from a cohort of subjects implanted with BSC PM without RYTHMIQ pooled from OPTI-MIND study.
Secondary Outcome Measures
Combined event rate of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular hospitalizations and atrial fibrillation at 2 years stratified per patient characteristics. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
A multivariate model will be used to find the independent association with the combined primary endpoint, RYTHMIQ algorithm and other patient characteristics.
Variables of interests include (but are not limited to): primary pacing indication (SND vs AVB), degree of AVB, age, gender, underlying disease, use of Betablockers, history of atrial fibrillation, LVEF, NYHA class, RV lead position, type of sensors used.
