BREAKTHROUGH SUBCUTANEOUS ICD IMPLANTED AT SOUTH NASSAU HOSPITAL
Lawrence Kanner, MD, FACC, director of electrophysiology and arrhythmia services at South Nassau, recently implanted the S-ICD® System, the world’s first and only implantable cardio-defibrillator that functions without leads (electrodes) placed into the heart. The S-ICD System provides defibrillation therapy for treatment of life-threatening rapid heart rhythms in patients who do not require pacemaker support and whose rapid heart rhythms are not reliably terminated with pacing. ICD’s and CRT-Ds have been proven in clinical studies to save and extend lives by preventing sudden cardiac death (SCA) and treating heart failure.
