Evaluation of Pacemaker Algorithms to Avoid Unnecessary Right Ventricular Pacing (ADVANTAGE)

This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Collaborators:
Klinikum Bamberg
Krankenhaus Peißenberg
Medtronic
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Deutsches Herzzentrum Muenchen
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01803217
First received: February 28, 2013
Last updated: April 7, 2017
Last verified: April 2017
  Purpose

Unnecessary right ventricular pacing has been shown to be detrimental in recipients of implantable pacemaker or defibrillators.

The ADVANTAGE study evaluates the efficacy of two pacemaker based algorithms (atrioventricular hysteresis function versus mode switch to atrial pacing) to reduce right ventricular pacing.


Condition Intervention
Pacemaker Implantation for Sinus Node Disease Other: pacemaker programming to mode switch to atrial pacing versus atrioventricular hysteresis function

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Participant
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: AV-Hysteresis Versus Mode Switch to AAI (MVP) for the Avoidance of Unnecessary Right Ventricular Pacing
