The S-ICD System

The S-ICD System is an established, first-choice therapy that provides protection for patients at risk for sudden cardiac death while avoiding risks and complications associated with transvenous leads.
Transvenous Lead-Related Complications
Multiple studies demonstrate that young patients are particularly at risk of lead complications and that  patients survive longer than their TV-ICD leads
Transvenous Lead Infections
1 year survival curves among TV-ICD patients with pocket infection & endovascular infection following TV-ICD system removal

S-ICD: A New Evolution of Therapy

Transvenous implantable cardiac defibrillators (TV-ICDs) have been extending patients’ lives for years. Now there’s an important evolution: the subcutaneous implantable device (S-ICD) which offers a less invasive solution for patients at risk of sudden cardiac death.
