EMBLEM™ MRI S-ICD System
Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator
The EMBLEM MRI S-ICD has been built upon the excellent clinical performance of the world’s first subcutaneous ICD; providing protection for patients at risk for sudden cardiac death (SCD) while leaving the heart and vasculature untouched.
Entirely SUBCUTANEOUS ICD
The EMBLEM MRI S-ICD System may be implanted using only anatomical landmarks, thereby reducing the need for fluoroscopy during implant.
NOTE: During prep and drape and prior to first incision, it is recommended to use fluoroscopy to ensure proper location of the device and electrode relative to the heart.
Implant Procedure Steps
(Please see EMBLEM/EMBLEM MRI Manual for full implant instructions)
The 3-incision technique is described below. It is recommended that physicians are familiar with the 3-incision technique before performing the 2-incision technique.1 Regardless of technique used it is important the that device and electrode are on the fascial plane, below adipose tissue.1,2
Optimal S-ICD Placement
Post-implant X-rays show optimal placement of the pulse generator and subcutaneous electrode.
Note: This image shows the placement of the EMBLEM™ S-ICD System in a patient.
Excellent Cosmetic Outcome
The pulse generator’s discrete pocket placement offers excellent aesthetic results. Once implanted, the EMBLEM MRI S-ICD System is designed to not limit range of motion and most patients are able to resume normal daily activity shortly after the procedure.
Results from cases studies are not necessarily predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary
