BIO-LIBRA Clinical Study (BIO-LIBRA)

Analysis of Both Sex and Device Specific Factors on Outcomes in Patients With Non-Ischemic Cardiomyopathy



The purpose of this registry is to prospectively assess outcomes of device-treated ventricular tachyarrhythmias and all-cause mortality in non-ischemic cardiomyopathy patients indicated for ICD or CRT-D implantation for the primary prevention of sudden cardiac death. Differences in outcomes will be evaluated by sex and by device type.
