Description

Summary

Pivotal Summary: The study is designed to demonstrate safety and efficacy of the Extravascular Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (EV ICD) System. Continued Access Summary: This study is designed to provide continued access to the Extravascular Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (EV ICD) System.

Official Title

Extravascular ICD Pivotal Study (EV ICD)

Details

The study will enroll subjects who are indicated to receive an implantable defibrillator and who meet all of the inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria. Subjects will receive an investigational Extravascular Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (EV ICD) system, in which a lead is placed outside of the heart and veins to deliver defibrillation therapy. Subjects will be followed until regulatory approval is received.

  • Prior chest radiotherapy

Or any other prior/planned medical intervention not listed that precludes their participation in the opinion of the Investigator.

  • Was chronic and recurrent, or
  • Resulted in pericardial effusion [v], or
  • Resulted in pericardial thickening or calcification [vi].

  • Hiatal hernia that distorts mediastinal anatomy
  • Marked sternal abnormality (e.g., pectus excavatum)

  • Severe aortic stenosis
  • Intracardiac LA or LV thrombus
  • Severe proximal three-vessel or left main coronary artery disease without revascularization
  • Hemodynamic instability
  • Unstable angina
  • Recent stroke or transient ischemic attack (within the last 6 months)
  • Known inadequate external defibrillation
  • LVEF <20%
  • LVEDD >70 mm

Or any other known medical condition not listed that precludes their participation in the opinion of the Investigator.

  • Patient with any evidence of active infection or undergoing treatment for an infection.
  • Patient is contraindicated from temporary suspension of oral/systemic anticoagulation
  • Patient with current implantation of neurostimulator or any other chronically implanted device that delivers current in the body.
  • Patient meets ACC/AHA/HRS or ESC clinical guideline Class III criteria for an ICD (e.g., life expectancy of less than 12 months).
  • Patient is enrolled or planning to enroll in a concurrent clinical study that may confound the results of this study, without documented pre-approval from a Medtronic study manager.
  • Patient with any exclusion criteria as required by local law (e.g., age or other).
  • Pregnant women or breastfeeding women, or women of child bearing potential and who are not on a reliable form of birth regulation method or abstinence.
