The automatic detection and termination of ventricular fibrillation is still the key function of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) therapy. The progress in generator and lead technology has overcome limitations in defibrillation efficacy in early transvenous defibrillator devices. Current, active pectoral biphasic devices provide a high defibrillation efficacy. More than 90% of all patients will meet accepted implantation criteria without any intraoperative system modifications. Is… CONTINUE READING
