Participants enrolled in this study will have been diagnosed with patent foramen ovale (PFO) and have been scheduled to have a cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) such as a pacemaker, implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), or cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) device implanted. A PFO is a condition when there is a hole in the septum (the wall separating the right and left sides) of the heart. The purpose of this study is to determine whether closing the PFO with the GORE® Cardioform Septal Occluder in people with an endocardial device leads reduces the risk of recurrent stroke or imaging-confirmed transient ischemic attack (TIA) compared to not closing the PFO.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the relation of the acute pacing threshold (volts at ‘x’ pulse width) to the chronic pacing threshold of a pacemaker/ICD lead by studying the threshold during implantation at different pulse widths (eg. Twice of ‘x’, Three times of ‘x’).
The purpose of this study is to gather information to develop and validate a predictive tool for predicting the response to CRT therapy.
