  • The correct rate of implantation for implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and CRT-D devices is not known, but practice surveys suggest persistent under-utilization of these treatments on both sides of the Atlantic. Although recent clinical trial results and the implementation of current guidelines appear to have encouraged a growth of the rate of implantation in most countries, there remains a remarkable trans-Atlantic difference which has not changed much for more than 10 years.
