abstract

  • Abnormal R-wave sensing is frequently observed during follow-up with the Medtronic Fidelis ICD lead. Lead revision was necessary in 2.8% of the patients, most often (8 of 10) due to abnormal R-wave sensing along with elevated pacing threshold. Whether this issue is limited to this lead or reflects a potential problem with all downsized ICD leads merits further investigation.
