Abbott Ventricular Tachycardia Post Approval Study

List of Studies


This study is enrolling subjects who are scheduled for a ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation. Ventricular tachycardia is a fast heartbeat that starts with an abnormal signal in the lower chambers of the heart, which are the ventricles. An ablation is a procedure where a catheter (thin, flexible tube) with a tip that can deliver energy is used to burn the heart tissue where those abnormal signals are coming from. The catheter being used in this study is called the FlexAbilityTM Ablation Catheter and was recently approved for commercial use by the Food and Drug Administration. (FDA) Since it is newly approved, the FDA wants to continue collecting more information about the catheter and its use, so this study is called a post approval study. Participation in this study will take about 1 year. During this year, data will be collected including your medical history, cardiac medication use, ablation procedure, and any medical events that may occur. You will be seen or contacted 4 times. There is a risk of loss of confidentiality and there may be risks that are not yet known. There may be no direct benefit to you but it is hoped the information learned may contribute to knowledge in this field.
