Subcutaneous String Defibrillator*
* Development stage product - not for sale
The ISSD™ introduces a new dimension in subcutaneous cardioverter defibrillator.
Completely unitary and flexible with an innovative, low-profile, string-like shape, it’s the first rechargeable ICD, with secure BLE communication for easy monitoring and interaction with other implanted devices.
With no leads within the heart, ISSD™ implantation is minimally invasive and can be performed on an out-patient basis, without fluoroscopy.
With leads placed alongside the sternum and the side, the device is easily inserted below the ribs, with only 3 small incisions required and no need to create a pulse generator pocket.
This results in minimal anatomical protrusion, for improved patient comfort and aesthetic appearance.
Due to it’s very short, less invasive and simple implantation procedure, ISSD™ is the only ICD which may be implanted in an outpatient clinic
