A novel approach to eliminate intraventricular lead placement in patients with congenital heart disease

Journal of Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology , 05/25/2012

A new implant approach is presented, which involves minimal intravascular hardware and eliminates passage across the atrioventricular valve for patients with congenital heart disease in whom conventional implantable cardioverter–defibrillator implant techniques may be undesirable or not possible. This procedure is technically straightforward with proper technique and knowledge of the patient specific anatomy.
