Medtronic’s Extravascular ICD Stops Ventricular Arrhythmias In Pilot Trial
In a 21-patient first in-human pilot trial, Medtronic’s Extravascular Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (EV ICD) system successfully terminated induced ventricular arrhythmias in 89.5% of patients and achieved pacing capture in 95% of patients.

The pivotal trial of Medtronic’s EV ICD, an implantable cardioverter defibrillator without a transvenous lead, has begun with implants in Illinois and New Zealand. The study will measure device-related complications with the device over six months and test EV ICD's ability to stop ventricular fibrillation.
Procedural outcome data of the UNTOUCHED trial of the Emblem subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator show low perioperative complication rates and high conversion efficacy of induced ventricular fibrillation in a high-risk patient population.
HRS 2017: Medtronic And Boston Scientific's Less-Invasive CRM Devices Perform As Hoped In Real-World Registries
Results from the post-approval trials of Medtronic's Micra Transcatheter Pacing System and Boston Scientific's S-ICD presented at the Heart Rhythm Society Scientific Sessions in Chicago show these "leadless" devices can be implanted in "real world" patients with acute outcomes similar to those of the pre-market trials that had more restrictive inclusion criteria.
