OBJECTIVES We sought to examine the relationship between hospital implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) implantation volume and procedural complications in a contemporary, representative population. BACKGROUND Hospitals that perform higher volumes of procedures generally have better clinical outcomes. METHODS We examined initial ICD implantations between January 2006 and December 2008 at hospitals participating in the NCDR (National Cardiovascular Data Registry) ICD Registry and… CONTINUE READING
