The purpose of this observational study is to collect data regarding the population of patients implanted with St. Jude Medical ICD.
Condition or disease
Ventricular TachycardiaAtrial Fibrillation
The purpose of this observational study is to collect data regarding the population of patients implanted with a St. Jude Medical ICD. Data regarding Slow Ventricular Tachycardia Episodes, Atrial Fibrillation Episodes and the devices programmed parameters will be collected during two years after the implant.
Slow Ventricular Tachycardia episodes will be considered as a tachycardia episodes detected by the device between 120-150 bpm and with more than 30sec of duration AF Episodes will be considered only when their duration is >30sec
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Cardiovascular Mortality Hospitalization Rate Due to Cardiovascular Reasons or Heart Failure [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
