|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Ventricular Tachycardia Ventricular Fibrillation||Device: Unpinning Termination Therapy||Not Applicable|
A prospective single-arm feasibility study involving acute testing of UPT electrotherapy in subjects with VT/VF during clinically indicated ventricular tachycardia catheter ablation procedure or indicated implantable cardioverter defibrillator implant, upgrade, or replacement or new CRT-D implant or upgrade to CRT-D.
The study involves up to two roll in subjects at each participating site followed by an UPT evaluation and refinement segment in which remaining subjects are enrolled until arrhythmia terminations from UPT delivery are reliably achieved. A prospective evaluation segment will be performed to compare UPT against SBS and ATP if sufficient subjects remain once reliable terminations from UPT are achieved.
Subjects will be evaluated at the visits for the Clinically-Indicated Procedure per standard of care. A single follow-up at up to 30 days post-procedure is required to assess subjects for adverse events.

Experimental: Unpinning Termination Therapy Arm
Subjects will have VT/VF induced and the Cardialen External Stimulation System (CESS) device will deliver electrical stimulation to terminate the arrhythmia
Device: Unpinning Termination Therapy
The Cardialen External Stimulation System (CESS) is the research delivery system for the proprietary Cardialen Unpinning Therapy (UPT) therapy. The CESS is a custom designed and built research device. It is comprised of off-the-shelf commercial components (power supplies, waveform generators, laptop computer, monitor, rack, ECG system, leads, etc.) combined with a custom electrical circuit board and custom software.
