CRMD replacement with CRT and AIGISRx
Patients who have undergone CRMD replacement with a CRT and the AIGISRx Anti-bacterial envelope, with or without lead revision (Prospective Arm)
CRMD replacement with CRT and no AIGISRx
Patients who have undergone CRMD replacement with a CRT and no AIGISRx Anti-bacterial envelope, with or without lead revision/addition(Retrospective Case-Control Arm)
Cardiac rhythm management device (CRMD) infection is associated with significant morbidity and expense. The frequency of CRMD infection is increasing faster than the frequency of CRMD implants, suggesting more effective prophylactic strategies are needed.
The AIGISRx Anti-Bacterial Envelope is an FDA-cleared polypropylene mesh that is intended to securely hold a pacemaker pulse generator or defibrillator (ICD) in order to create a stable environment when implanted in the body. It contains the antimicrobial agents, rifampin and minocycline, which have been shown to reduce infection in an in vivo model of bacterial contamination following surgical implant of the generator or defibrillator.
This is a prospective, observational, multicenter registry of subjects undergoing CRMD replacement with a CRT and AIGISRx, with or without lead revision/addition. The registry subjects will be compared to a case-matched retrospective control group undergoing CRMD replacement with a CRT and no AIGISRx, with or without lead revision/addition. The primary study endpoints are major CRMD infection and CRMD mechanical complication during the 12 months following CRMD replacement with a CRT.
