Ventricular Pace Suppression Study
Ventricular Pace Suppression Study With the EVIA/ENTOVIS DR-T/DR Pacemaker
Investigation of the efficacy and safety of the Ventricular Pace Suppression (VpS) algorithm.
The aim of this study is to investigate the percentage of reduction of ventricular pacing using the VpS feature of the EVIA/ENTOVIS pacemaker in a controlled clinical investigation.
Not Provided
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Pacemaker Indication
Device: VpS algorithm in EVIA and ENTOVIS pacemakers
For one group of patients, the VpS algorithm will be activated and for the other group, the VpS algorithm will be deactivated until the cross-over, where these conditions will be switched.
