AVAI: Atrial Ventricular Arrythmia Incidence
Study of Slow Ventricular Tachycardia and Atrial Fibrillation Incidence Documented by Intracardiac Electrogram in Patients Implanted With an Implantable Cardiac Device (ICD) .
The purpose of this observational study is to collect data regarding the population of patients implanted with St. Jude Medical ICD.
