Abstract
Implantable cardioverter defibrillators in children have proven to be an effective therapy for life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. The optimal electrode and device placement for implantable cardioverter defibrillator therapy in children is still controversial. We describe our initial experience after epicardial and pleural electrode insertion with abdominal or intrathoracic device placement in 8 children.
