Medtronic Observational Study in the "Real World" of Implantable Electronic Cardiac Devices
The Observational Study in the "Real World" of Implantable Electronic Cardiac Devices will enable the construction of an electronic database with local access to clinical information, which will collect and disseminate epidemiologic data on demography, cardiovascular mortality and morbidity, and potential risk factors for a selected group of patients. These clinical variables will be analyzed against the data, as based in the programming of devices and the diagnostics. Approved descriptive statistics and analyses will be made available via Internet. The study will describe statistical indexes on sub-groups representing more than 10% of total of datasets. The study will be open to include any patient that had a Medtronic electronic device implanted, pacemakers, ICD, ICD with CRP. The study will be also adapted for devices implanted in the present and for devices to be implanted in patients in the future.
