BACKGROUND Prior studies of active pectoral implantable defibrillator (ICD) lead systems demonstrated a lowering of defibrillation thresholds (DFTs) with the addition of a superior vena cava (SVC) coil. These studies were done on fixed-tilt waveforms where a large reduction in impedance leads to large phase duration changes. OBJECTIVE The present study was designed to evaluate the SVC coil benefit and intercoil spacing on DFTs with a "tuned" waveform. METHODS This prospective, multicenter… CONTINUE READING
