Results of two studies presented at the Heart Rhythm Society Scientific Sessions support the subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator as an alternative to ICDs with transvenous leads.
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.
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.
