EMBLEM MRI S-ICD System Protects Against Sudden Cardiac Arrest

The Only Device of its Kind

The EMBLEM MRI S-ICD is the only subcutaneous implantable defibrillator system that provides protection from both sudden cardiac death and the risks and complications associated with transvenous leads.

Key Resources



Product Details

The EMBLEM MRI S-ICD system provides effective defibrillation without transvenous leads, offering a less invasive solution for patients at risk of sudden cardiac arrest.

  • Preserves the vasculature
  • Eliminates potential for vascular injury, transvenous lead insertion complications, lead-associated tricuspid regurgitation,  mechanically induced pro-arrhythmia, and transvenous lead failure and associated extraction risk
  • Remains outside the sternum, never touching the heart

Low Inappropriate Shocks Using Recent Technologies and Implant Technique

Recent S-ICD one year inappropriate shock rates from two clinical studies, UNTOUCED and RHYTHM DETECT, were less than 2.0%2,3 – 5 times lower than the substernal ICD4.
