Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial With Subcutaneous Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (MADIT S-ICD)
The MADIT S-ICD trial is designed to evaluate if subjects with a prior myocardial infarction, diabetes mellitus and a relatively preserved ejection fraction of 36-50% will have a survival benefit from receiving a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) when compared to those receiving conventional medical therapy.
• Age ≥ 65 years on date of consent
• Diabetes mellitus treated with oral hypoglycemic agents, non-insulin injectable and/or insulin for the past 3 calendar months or longer prior to consent date
• LV ejection fraction (LVEF) of 36-50% documented by imaging (preferably by MRI or echocardiographic methods), within 12 calendar months before consent date and at least 3 calendar months after most recent Myocardial Infarction (MI), percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG).
• One or more clinically documented, enzyme-positive myocardial infarctions, more than 3 calendar months prior to consent date*. (If enzyme information and clinical documentation is not available, there must be a clear evidence of prior silent myocardial infarction identified as either new pathologic Q waves on ECG or imaging documentation of an infarcted area (left ventricular angiography/ nuclear scan/ MRI) Note: MI qualification based on the Universal Definition of MI)
• Qualifying 12-lead ECG within 6 calendar months before consent date and at least 3 calendar months after most recent MI, PCI or CABG. (The qualifying ECG* can be sinus rhythm or atrial fibrillation (patients with persistent or permanent atrial fibrillation should have a controlled ventricular response <100 bpm on consent date) *QRS duration on the qualifying ECG >90 msec)
• Passing S-ICD Screening ECG performed per applicable user's manual on or after the consent date that identifies one or more qualifying S-ICD sensing vectors
