The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) requires one

institution to conduct a multicenter trial to assess whether or not the

use of an implantable cardiac defibrillator will result in reduced

total mortality in comparison to conventional pharmacologic therapy in

patients who have been resuscitated from sudden cardiac death or are

otherwise at very high risk of mortality from arrhythmic causes.  The

study will consist of a pilot phase and a full-scale trial.  Two

hundred patients will be entered into the pilot study.  If the pilot

study demonstrates that a full-scale trial is feasible, approximately

1,000 patients will be entered into the full-scale study.


The period of performance is anticipated for 89 months beginning in

September 1992.


This is a notice of availability of a Request for Proposals (RFP).  RFP

NHLBI-HC-92-10 will be available on or about January 28, 1992, with
