EMBLEM™ MRI S-ICD System
Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator
The Only Device of its Kind
The EMBLEM MRI S-ICD is the only subcutaneous implantable defibrillator that provides protection from both sudden cardiac death and the risks and complications associated with transvenous leads.
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
