However, at times patients will be encountered who require placement of a pulse generator below the muscle. Such patients may be identified by a low body mass index, depleted fat stores, and lack of adequate subcutaneous tissue to adequately cover the device. These patients are at high risk for device erosion. Another candidate for submusclar device placement would be a… CONTINUE READING
