The purpose

The purpose of the THORN registry is to show the ability of Home-Monitoring® to early identify and manage the inappropriate diagnoses of ventricular arrhythmia in ICD patients (i.e. lead rupture, atrial arrhythmia, oversensing…) whatever the type of device (single, dual, or triple chamber). The electromyograms (iEGMs) provided by Remote Patient Monitoring will help the physician to early detect inadequate arrhythmia detection (ID) that can be responsible for inappropriate therapies (IT), and to take preventive actions in order to reduce the burden of these inappropriate therapies. THORN is an observational epidemiologic, prospective and multicenter registry. The primary objective is to measure the relative proportion of patients experiencing at least one inappropriate therapy during a fifteen months follow-up period. Moreover, THORN will assess the incidence, predictors, outcome and recurrence of inappropriate diagnoses in 1750 ICD patients.
