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.

Dr. Kanner and South Nassau’s Center for Cardiac Health have been in the forefront in providing heart failure patients on Long Island with the latest advancements in ICD devices and electrophysiology services. Click here for more information:
