The prognostic benefit of the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) has been well established in multiple settings and its use is consequently widespread. Modern-day ICD systems use transvenous high-voltage leads to act as the interface between the heart and the generator, allowing for the sensing of a cardiac activity and the delivery of both bradycardia and tachycardia therapy, including high-voltage, high-current shocks. The ICD lead is in many ways the most fragile and critical… CONTINUE READING
