Pediheart Podcast #159: The S-ICD In The Pediatric and ACHD Patient

This week in a co-branded episodes with the SADS Foundation (SADS.org) we speak with Professor Johannes von Alvensleben of U. Colorado about a recent PACES study on the outcomes of S-ICD's in children and ACHD patients. What are the challenges to their use and who is a good candidate? What is involved in screening patients for an S-ICD and why do children and ACHD patient seem to 'screen out' more than the general population? What are the challenges to their implantation and what is coming down the pipeline in terms of innovation with these devices? Dr. von Alvensleben shares his insights this week. doi: 10.1016/j.jacep.2020.07.010
