Medtronic’s Extravascular ICD Stops Ventricular Arrhythmias In Pilot Trial
In a 21-patient first in-human pilot trial, Medtronic’s Extravascular Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (EV ICD) system successfully terminated induced ventricular arrhythmias in 89.5% of patients and achieved pacing capture in 95% of patients.

Results from the pivotal trial of Medtronic’s EV ICD extravascular ICD, presented at the European Society of Cardiology congress in Barcelona, imply that Medtronic will be able to launch the device in Europe by the end of this year and in the US in 2023.
The pivotal trial of Medtronic’s EV ICD, an implantable cardioverter defibrillator without a transvenous lead, has begun with implants in Illinois and New Zealand. The study will measure device-related complications with the device over six months and test EV ICD's ability to stop ventricular fibrillation.
Procedural outcome data of the UNTOUCHED trial of the Emblem subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator show low perioperative complication rates and high conversion efficacy of induced ventricular fibrillation in a high-risk patient population.
