The purpose of this clinical investigation was to assess the safety and effectiveness of the EASYTRAK 3 lead
Condition or disease
Congestive Heart Failure
Device: EASYTRAK 3 left ventricular pacing lead
Phase 2Phase 3
This clinical study was a prospective, multi-center, clinical evaluation to document safety and effectiveness of the EASYTRAK 3 lead in humans. Patients implanted with the EASYTRAK 3 lead were followed through pre-discharge, 1-month, 3-month and 6-month follow-ups
