Defibrillation can be successfully provided by the subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) without the leads. In contrast, traditional ICDs require leads that can cause central venous stenosis, lead-induced endocarditis, and carry the risk of tricuspid regurgitation by valve adhesion, perforation, coaptation interference, or entanglement. Central venous stenosis, infection, and tricuspid regurgitation are all critically important considerations in hemodialysis patients. Recent reports are supporting the use of subcutaneous ICDs in renal patients maintained on long-term hemodialysis...

Patients with diabetes mellitus, prior myocardial infarction, older age, and a relatively preserved left ventricular ejection fraction remain at risk for sudden cardiac death that is potentially amenable by the subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator with a good risk-benefit profile. The launched MADIT S-ICD study is designed to test the hypothesis that post-myocardial infarction diabetes patients with relatively preserved ejection fraction of 36%-50% will have a survival benefit from a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator...

BACKGROUND: During early experience with subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD(TM)), several patients had inappropriate shocks from TWOS during exercise. This prompted some operators to perform routine treadmill exercise test after implantation of S-ICD to screen for TWOS. Meanwhile, improvements have been made in the detection algorithms by the manufacturer. OBJECTIVE: To assess whether routine treadmill exercise post S-ICD(TM) implantation is warranted...

The number of children and adult with congenital heart disease requiring implantation of cardiac pacemaker or cardioverter defibrillator is constantly increasing. The lead between stimulation/defibrillation site and the generator constitutes the main weakpoint of those devices despite the numerous recent technological advances: use of bipolar probes, corticoid elution electrodes, insulation improvement, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) compatibility. Risk of device failure remains high in this population. Long term adverse events with endovascular devices remain high...

BACKGROUND: Many patients with severe heart failure (HF) have an indication for baroreflex activation therapy (BAT) and an ICD. Concerns about device-device interactions were addressed in a study with small sample size that concluded combined BAT and ICD therapy is safe. There are no published data, however, concerning device-device interactions between BAT and a subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD). Since BAT frequently interferes with surface ECG recordings there are doubts about compatibility of BAT and S-ICD devices...

PURPOSE: Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) is an alternative to transvenous ICD to prevent sudden cardiac death. Subcutaneous ICD implantation frequently requires general anesthesia because of procedure nociceptive steps during creation of a large device pocket and lead tunneling. This study aims to determine if a strategy of operator-guided controlled sedation with midazolam and analgesia with nalbuphine is effective in alleviating pain during S-ICD implantation...

Candidates for the subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) are screened using an electrocardiogram (S-ECG) tool to measure appropriate detection. We sought to define the S-ICD candidacy of congenital heart disease patients using the S-ECG tool. We also analyzed the reliability of the (S-ECG) tool between measurers in this population. Patients above the age of 12 and with a diagnosis associated with either a higher incidence of cardiac arrest or vascular access challenges were asked to undergo screening...

Screening tests conducted at rest may be inadequate for the prediction of the T-wave oversensing (TWOS) in subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) candidates with Brugada syndrome (BrS) because of the dynamic nature of electrocardiogram (ECG) morphology. We evaluated the utility of ECG screening during drug challenge (DC) for prediction of TWOS in BrS patients implanted with an S-ICD. The study enrolled 6 consecutive BrS patients implanted with an S-ICD. In addition to baseline ECG screening, pre-implant screening during DC using a sodium channel blocker was performed in all patients...

BACKGROUND: Information regarding suitability for subcutaneous defibrillator (sICD) implantation in tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) and systemic right ventricle is scarce and needs to be further explored. The main objective of our study was to determine the proportion of patients with ToF and systemic right ventricle eligible for sICD with both, standard and right-sided screening methods. Secondary objectives were: (i) to study sICD eligibility specifically in patients at high risk of sudden cardiac death, (ii) to identify independent predictors for sICD eligibility, and (iii) to compare the proportion of eligible patients in a nonselected ICD population...

BACKGROUND: The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) was developed to reduce short- and long-term complications associated with transvenous ICD leads. Early multicenter studies included younger patients with less left ventricular systolic dysfunction and fewer comorbidities than cohorts with traditional ICD. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to characterize patient selection and the acute performance of the S-ICD in a contemporary real-world setting...
