Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
After enrollment, baseline eligibility criteria were assessed (e.g. ventricular dyssynchrony, NYHA, QRS width, etc.) to qualify for implant. 1680 subjects were enrolled. 825 subjects did not qualify for implant and were exited from the study. 855 subjects qualified for implant. 821 subjects were successfully implanted. 809 subjects were randomized.

Reporting Groups
  Description
CRT=ON

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy activated.

Subject implanted with BIOTRONIK Lumax HF-T CRT-D system with ICD back-up enabled and randomized to CRT=ON.

CRT=OFF

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy deactivated.

Subject implanted with BIOTRONIK Lumax HF-T CRT-D system with ICD back-up enabled and randomized to CRT=OFF.
