BACKGROUND: The eligibility of patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS) for implantation of a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) is not well known. This study aimed to clarify the eligibility of BrS patients for S-ICD using electrocardiography (ECG) at rest and during exercise testing. We also analyzed factors associated with ineligibility for S-ICD from standard 12-lead ECG at rest. METHODS: We enrolled 110 consecutive BrS patients who visited Okayama university hospital from December 2015 to December 2016...

BACKGROUND: The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) was developed to defibrillate ventricular arrhythmias, avoiding drawbacks of transvenous leads. The global EFFORTLESS S-ICD (Evaluation oF FactORs ImpacTing CLinical Outcome and Cost EffectiveneSS of the S-ICD) registry is collecting outcomes in 985 patients during a 5-year follow-up. OBJECTIVES: The primary goal of the EFFORTLESS registry is to determine the safety of the S-ICD by evaluating complications and inappropriate shock rate...

BACKGROUND: The subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) is recognized as a viable alternative to the transvenous ICD. The safety and efficacy of this device has been demonstrated in Western countries, but studies with S-ICD implantation in Japanese patients have not been reported. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twelve patients received an S-ICD implant in our institute between February and September 2016. All S-ICDs were successfully implanted without complications...

BACKGROUND: Tufted angiomas (TAs) are uncommon benign vascular tumors mostly located cutaneously or subcutaneously in the skin of the neck and upper trunk, which appear during childhood and grow slowly. TAs are a variant of lobular capillary hemangiomas. This is the first study to provide an overview of the current literature in combination with the authors' own clinical experience on this rare entity in the head and neck area with non-dermatological localization. METHODS: A selective Medline and Google Scholar database search was performed...

Implanted cardioverter-defibrillators can prevent sudden cardiac death in at-risk patients. In comparison with conventional transvenous systems, entirely subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillators have produced similar reductions in the rate of sudden cardiac death but with fewer sequelae. An infrequently reported drawback of subcutaneous devices, however, is the potential for generating attenuation artifact during nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging. We had concerns about potential attenuation artifact in a 65-year-old man with coronary artery disease but found that having positioned the pulse generator in the midaxillary zone avoided problems...

In this article we describe, to our knowledge, the first case of a potentially lethal dysfunction of a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD). A 70-year-old patient underwent primary S-ICD implantation. Nine months after, communication could not be established with the device. Chest radiography revealed that the lead had moved and wrapped around the generator. After equipment extraction, we observed the lead wound around the sagittal axis of the generator. A burn mark with melted metal was found inside the generator...

Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillators (S-ICDs) provide effective defibrillation, while also reducing the risk of long-term lead problems. However, S-ICDs do not offer bradycardia or antitachycardia pacing and therefore use has been limited. Combined implantation of an S-ICD with a leadless pacemaker (LP) has been proposed to overcome this limitation. Although a handful of combined S-ICD/LP implantations have been reported for Nanostim (St Jude Medical, St Paul, MN) as well as Micra LP (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN) systems, none have documented delivery of appropriate shock therapies for spontaneous ventricular tachycardia...

AIM: To describe the long-term follow-up of patients with complex congenital heart disease who underwent subcutaneous implantable cardiac defibrillator (S-ICD), focusing on local complications, appropriate and inappropriate shocks. METHODS: Patients with complex congenital heart disease underwent S-ICD implant in two centers with the conventional technique. Data at follow-up were retrieved from clinical notes and institutional database. RESULTS: Eight patients were implanted in two centres between 2010 and 2016...

The implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is today an indisputable evidence-based treatment for cardiac sudden death both in primary and secondary prevention. However many clinical conditions that would represent an indication to ICD implantation, according to guidelines, may be potentially reversible or may be accompanied by temporary contraindications to the implant. Moreover transvenous cardioverter defibrillator implantation still carries a not negligible risk of complications both acutely and at follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillators (S-ICDs) are considered an alternative to conventional transvenous ICDs (TV-ICDs) in patients not requiring pacing. METHODS: We searched MEDLINE and EMBASE for studies evaluating efficacy and safety outcomes in S-ICD patients. Outcomes were pooled across studies. RESULTS: Sixteen studies were included with 5380 participants (mean age range 33-56 years). Short-term follow-up data were available for 1670 subjects...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of fish oils, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), on ventricular tachyarrhythmic episodes (VTEs) in implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) recipients with ischemic cardiomyopathy. METHODS: One hundred five ICD recipients with ischemic cardiomyopathy received 3.6 g of EPA and DHA and placebo for 6 months, each at a random order, with a 4-month washout period between treatments...

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-defibrillators (S-ICD), several patients had inappropriate shocks from T-wave oversensing (TWOS) during exercise. This prompted some operators to perform routine treadmill exercise tests 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 implantation is warranted...
