Reported is a case involving a patient with a previously implanted spinal cord stimulator (SCS) who presented for an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). The SCS device was located in the left lower abdominal quadrant with a stimulation electrode array placed on the dorsal aspect of the spinal cord at the T-11 thoracic level. Interaction testing demonstrated that the biopolar sensing transvenous ICD system (Medtronic 7221 Cx PCD) did not detect the stimulator's output at burst rates… CONTINUE READING
