Abstract

Supraventricular tachyarrhythmias are the main cause for inappropriate therapy by implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs). For better rhythm discrimination, an atrial electrogram is helpful and usually obtained from an additional atrial lead, even in the absence of sinus node or atrioventricular nodal disease. An A+-ICD system with integrated atrial sensing rings mounted 15 to 18 cm from the tip of an ICD lead may obviate the need to implant a separate atrial lead. The aim of the study was to compare the novel A+-ICD and a conventional dual-chamber (DR)-ICD.
