BACKGROUND Total subcutaneous implantable subcutaneous defibrillators are in development, but optimal electrode configurations are not known. OBJECTIVE We used image-based finite element models (FEM) to predict the myocardial electric field generated during defibrillation shocks (pseudo-DFT) in a wide variety of reported and innovative subcutaneous electrode positions to determine factors affecting optimal lead positions for subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (S-ICD… CONTINUE READING
