Leads, Implantable Defibrillator, Subcutaneous

Definition : Leads designed to conduct electrical pacing signals from the pulse generating unit of an implantable subcutaneous defibrillator or defibrillator/cardioverter (i.e., an implantable cardioverter/defibrillator [ICD]) to the heart and conduct the bioelectric cardiac signals back to the unit. These leads typically consist of flexible wires that completely isolated except at the electrode tips; they are positioned in the subcutaneous tissue of the chest above but not touching the heart. The tips include the sensing electrodes and a shock coil. Lead size, connector type, and other characteristics of the leads must be compatible with the subcutaneous implantable defibrillator pulse generator and the therapy prescribed.
