Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
Time to Ventricular Tachycardia or Ventricular Fibrillation (VT/VF) triggered ICD interventions or sudden death - The presence of VT or VF was documented by ICD interrogation leading to any ICD interventions (shocks or anti-tachycardia pacing).
The 10 first ICD interventions for each patient were centrally and blindly adjudicated by an Adjudication Committee.
Timepoint [1] 0 0
up to 20 months (median follow-up of 12 months)
Secondary outcome [1] 0 0
Time to ICD shocks (appropriate or inappropriate) or death from any cause
Timepoint [1] 0 0
up to 20 months (median follow-up of 12 months)
Secondary outcome [2] 0 0
Time to Cardiovascular hospitalization or death
Timepoint [2] 0 0
up to 20 months (median follow-up of 12 months)

Summary
Brief summary
The Primary objective was to assess the efficacy of Celivarone for the prevention of
Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) interventions or death.

Secondary objectives were:

- To assess the tolerability and safety of the different dose regimens of Celivarone in
the selected population.

- To document Celivarone plasma levels during the study.
