Interference by Cellular Telephone with an Implantable Loop Recorder


We report the observation of interference between an implanted loop recorder and a cellular telephone when the latter was placed over the subcutaneous pocket. The artifact produced during the ringing of the telephone was automatically recorded and stored in the device memory. A similar interference was documented during ex vivo testing.
