Résumé
The implantable cardioverter-defibrillator is a device able to detect and efficiently treat life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. Its decisive accomplishment in reducing sudden cardiac death and total cardiac mortality, opposed to the insufficient reliability of the traditional therapies explains its present ascendancy. In this review, the working principles and the implant techniques are developed, as well as the complications and the usual problems which could be encountered in implanted patients. Finally, the current indications are discussed in the light of recent clinical trials.
