7 Medtech Discovery of the Decade Nominees—S-ICD System

S-ICD System

Boston Scientific's S-ICD System offers many patients cardiac defibrillation without transvenous leads. Leads can come with complications, such as migration and perforation, and attempts to remove leads can be risky too. The S-ICD is implanted subcutaneously and does not contact the heart or veins.

In August 2016, FDA granted approval to the third-generation Emblem MRI S-ICD, an MR-conditional device.

The S-ICD System won the Prix Galien "Best Medical Technology" award in 2013.
