Avoid TV Lead Complications with S-ICD

The EMBLEM™ S-ICD System protects patients at risk for sudden cardiac death while leaving the heart untouched and preserving the vasculature. It reduces the potential for systemic infection and avoids potential complications associated with endovascular lead implantation or lead extraction.

The EMBLEM S-ICD System is part of the only established and sophisticated category of subcutaneous defibrillators.
