Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator

Progressive Therapy Starts with S-ICD

The EMBLEM MRI S-ICD system is the first and only subcutaneous implantable defibrillator that has provided protection for over two decades1-9 to a broad range of patients at risk for sudden cardiac death, while also providing protection from the risks and complications associated with transvenous leads. And it remains outside the sternum, never touching the heart.

  • Works for patients of all ages
  • Minimizes serious complications
  • Offers a less invasive alternative that’s predictable, safer and simpler
  • Is more flexible and easier to extract 

Fewer Risks - TODAY

Both acute and chronic TV-ICD complications are more prevalent than generally acknowledged. Many patients are getting devices earlier in life and with better management of heart failure are living longer and are more likely to outlive their transvenous lead. EMBLEM MRI S-ICD gives these patients a less-invasive solution that avoids the risks that come with TV-ICD.
3-4% of patients with TV-ICD suffer lead malfunctions in the first year of implant11
About 25% mechanical failure rate for TV-ICD at 10 years11
4% infection rate for TV-ICD at 10 years11
