Arrhythmias

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICD's)

  • VEST/PREDICTS: A study to see if an external automatic defibrillator vest will reduce overall mortality in the first 60 days following an MI in patients with EF < 35%. Primary investigator: Eric J. Rashba, MD
  • ST-Segment Detection Study: A study to see if a special implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) can detect changes in the heart that would indicate an impending coronary event. Primary investigator: Eric J. Rashba, MD
  • SMART-AV Study: A study to determine the most effective algorithm of device programming in patients who have received a BiVentircular ICD. Primary investigator: Eric J. Rashba, MD
  • Risk Stratification in MADIT II Type Subjects: A study to determine the efficacy of non-invasive tests to risk stratify patients for ventricular arrhythmia's after receiving an ICD. Primary investigator: Eric J. Rashba, MD
  • CRT on DFT: A study to evaluate the effect of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) on the defibrillation threshold (DFT) estimates in patients who have received a BiVentricular ICD. Primary investigator: Eric J. Rashba, MD
