Condition heartfailure
Treatment left ventricular lead implant: acuity x4® lead family
Sponsor Boston Scientific Corporation
Collaborator ICON plc
Start date February 2014
End date February 2017
Trial size 864 participants
Trial identifier NCT02066467, Rally X4-10-2013


The objective of this study is to collect clinical data on safety and performance of ACUITY X4® leads when used in a standard clinical setting.

It is a prospective, non-randomized, observational multicenter study evaluating standard of care.

For Post Market Clinical Follow up (PMCF) purposes the 3 month implant success rate, adverse events and basic parameters of the lead will be assessed. The cohort of subjects included in this evaluation will be the first 200 subjects which are indicated for PMCF in Rally X4 to receive an ACUITY X4® lead implant.

Study endpoints:

Phrenic Nerve Stimulation (PNS) related CFR through 6 months post-implant (Defined as: rate of freedom from loss of function or operative system revision due to unacceptable PNS threshold) Lead-related Complication-Free Rate (CFR) from Implant through 3 months post-implant.

Study Design

Observational model cohort
Time perspective prospective
Subjects with art failure who receive stable optimal pharmacologic therapy Moderate to severe heart failure (NYHA Class III-IV) with ejection fraction (EF) ≤ 35% and QRS duration ≥ 120 ms Left bundle branch block (LBBB) with QRS duration ≥ 130 ms, EF ≤ 30%, and mild (NYHA Class II) ischemic or non-ischemic heart failure or asymptomatic (NYHA Class I) ischemic heart failure. The study is collecting observational data on regular CRT-D device implants with special focus on the left ventricular ACUITY X4® Lead Family' .
