Brief Summary:
The objective of the NAVIGATE X4 Clinical Study is to gather data to establish the safety, performance and effectiveness of the ACUITY™ X4 quadripolar coronary venous leads and the RELIANCE 4-FRONT™ ventricular defibrillation leads to satisfy FDA requirements for pre-market submission. Additionally, data from this study will be used to support post-market approval requirements for the ACUITY X4 and RELIANCE 4-FRONT leads.

Official Title: Evaluation of ACUITY™ X4 Quadripolar Coronary Venous Leads and RELIANCE™ 4-FRONT Defibrillation Leads: NAVIGATE X4
Actual Study Start Date : April 14, 2014
Actual Primary Completion Date : April 19, 2017
Actual Study Completion Date : October 6, 2020

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Enrolled Patients
Subjects undergo an implant procedure to receive at least one investigational lead -- ACUITY X4 left ventricular (LV) CRT lead, RELIANCE 4-FRONT right ventricular (RV) ICD lead
Device: ACUITY X4 quadripolar coronary venous lead and RELIANCE 4-FRONT defibrillation lead

The ACUITY X4 leads are intended for chronic left ventricular pacing and sensing. The leads have 3 tip configuration designs (straight tip, short tip spiral, and long tip spiral), which is intended to provide choices for patients with different anatomies.

The RELIANCE 4-FRONT leads are designed for right-side heart applications within the ventricle, atrium, and superior vena cava. It is intended for permanent sensing, pacing, and defibrillation when used with a compatible implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D).

Subjects were allowed to receive both the ACUITY X4 and RELIANCE 4-FRONT lead.

Other Names:
  • LV Quadripolar coronary venous lead
  • RV defibrillation Lead

Physician investigators were instructed to use the best proximal electrode (E2, E3 or E4) as the cathode and the RV lead coil or pulse generator as the anode; best was defined as the electrode with the lowest PCT without phrenic nerve stimulation. The percentage of measurements with PCT ≤ 2.5 V were calculated.

  5. Percentage of RELIANCE 4-FRONT Leads Free From Complication Through 3 Months [ Time Frame: Implant through 3 months ]
    Lead-related complication-free rate of RELIANCE 4-FRONT Leads from implant through 3 months post implant.

    Lead-related complication-free rate of RELIANCE 4-FRONT Leads from 3 through 24 months post implant.

  7. Mean Pacing Capture Threshold (PCT) of RELIANCE 4-FRONT Leads at 3 Months [ Time Frame: Implant through 3 months ]
    PCT measurements from RELIANCE 4-FRONT leads were collected at 3 months post-implant. Measurements were performed using 0.5 millisecond pulse width.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Sensed Amplitude of ACUITY X4 Spiral Leads at 3 Months [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Sensed amplitude measurements from ACUITY X4 Spiral leads were collected at 3 months post-implant.

  2. Mean Sensed Amplitude of ACUITY X4 Straight Leads at 3 Months [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Sensed amplitude measurements from ACUITY X4 Straight leads were collected at 3 months post-implant.

  3. Mean Pacing Impedance of ACUITY X4 Spiral Leads at 3 Months [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Pacing impedance measurements from ACUITY X4 Spiral leads were collected at 3 months post-implant.

  4. Mean Pacing Impedance ACUITY X4 Straight Leads at 3 Months [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Pacing impedance measurements from ACUITY X4 Straight leads were collected at 3 months post-implant.

  5. Mean Detection Time of Induced Ventricular Tachycardia / Ventricular Fibrillation (VT/VF) Episodes Using RELIANCE 4-FRONT Leads [ Time Frame: Within 30 days of implant ]
    The mean detection time, in seconds, of induced VT/VF episodes occurring within 30 days of implant were evaluated. Subjects were required to implanted with RELIANCE 4-FRONT leads to be evaluated.

  6. Mean Sensed Amplitude of RELIANCE 4-FRONT Leads at 3 Months [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Sensed amplitude measurements from RELIANCE 4-FRONT leads were collected at 3 months post-implant.

  7. Mean Pacing Impedance of RELIANCE 4-FRONT Active Fixation Leads at 3 Months [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Pacing impedance measurements from RELIANCE 4-FRONT Active Fixation leads were collected at 3 months post-implant.

  8. Mean Pacing Impedance of RELIANCE 4-FRONT Passive Fixation Leads at 3 Months [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Pacing impedance measurements from RELIANCE 4-FRONT Passive Fixation leads were collected at 3 months post-implant.

  9. Percentage of Successfully Converted Induced Ventricular Tachycardia / Ventricular Fibrillation (VT/VF) Episodes Using RELIANCE 4-FRONT Leads [ Time Frame: Within 30 days of implant ]
    Ventricular Tachyarrhythmia (VT/VF) Shock Conversion Efficacy, analyzed within 30 days of implant
